Scientific studies (like this one) show Coffee is good for your heart health, blood vessels, and mental clarity. You know, antioxidants and all that. Studies (like this one) also show Chocolate is good for you. You know, blood vessels, antioxidants, and all that. I am still waiting for a study to show that cookies are good for your heart health. I know they are. They have to be because they usually contain stuff like cocoa, an antioxidant, which as studies show, is good for your health. And once you combine the good cocoa with the good coffee you basically get this cookie. This phenomenal cookie.
Cocoa Almond Cut Outs from my recipe collection, I have no idea where I got the recipe.
- ¾ cup butter 2 ¾ cups flour
- 1 14 oz can condensed milk 2 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp almond extract 2/3 cup cocoa
- 1 tsp vanilla ½ tsp baking soda
Mix butter, milk, eggs and extracts until blended.Combine flour, baking powder, cocoa and soda. Add gradually to butter mixture. Divide dough into 4 equal parts, Wrap in plastic. Chill 2 hours.
Remove one part of dough at a time; keep other parts chilled. Roll out to about 1/8 inch thick on floured surface. Cut out with cookies cutters—festive ones for the Holidays!
Place on lightly greased baking sheet.
Bake 6 – 8 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
Enjoy the AWESOME that these cookies are with a rich Latin American coffee to compliment the cocoa that probably comes from Latin America. Remember, Kids, Eat your beans!
