almond and chocolate chips cookies

inspired by federica from sweet as a candy and her delicious recipe for hazelnut and chocolate cookies (check here the recipe) i decided to bake some cookies by myself! my parents were here in milan in the weekend so i needed something yummy for our sunday breakfast. i made some almond cookies and banana muffins as well (banana muffins recipe is coming soon ;). hope you will like it (i need to admitt that my cookies came out really delicious!).

you will need (for ca. 16 cookies):

-180 g (6,3 oz.) of flour
-1 teaspoon of baking soda
-80 g (ca 3 oz. of) almond leafs (or chopped almonds)
-50 g (1,8 oz.) of chopped chocolate (or chocolate chips)
-150 g (5,3 oz.) of melted butter
-120 g (4,3 oz.) of sugar (white and brown mixed would be the best)
-1 egg

mix well the egg with sugar (better if with an electric mixer), add melted butter and mix again. in another container mix the flour with baking soda. add slowly the egg-butter mixture to the flour and mix with a wooden spoon. add almonds and chocolate chips and mix again for a short while. you can also add few drops of almond aroma. leave under the kitchen towel for about 40-60 minutes (your mixture will become more firm). preheat the oven to 180°C (360°F). make small balls and put them on the baking paper (keep the distance as the cookies will extend a lot in the oven). bake for ca. 15 minutes or until your cookies are brown. leave for cooling and enjoy with a cup of fruity christmas tea or with a morning cappuccino!

i hope you will like it (as we did) and thank you for inspiration federica!
