Almond Sandwich Cookies with Nutella

I baked a jar of Almond Sandwich Cookies with Nutella for Christmas and before Christmas begin this cookies was gone! I know this cookies must taste so good just by looking at the empty sign in my cookies jar.I quickly bake the second batch again since hubby and mother in-law love it so much.I would strongly recommend this recipe to my readers to try if you're into cookies baking .I'm not a cookies eater but I was amazed how yummy-delicious this nutty and chocolaty flavor of this cookies .


Ingredients:


2 cup blanched almonds


3 cup flour


3 sticks butter at room temperature (12 oz)


1 cup sugar


2 tsp vanilla extract


2 egg

1/2 tsp salt


For Topping


1 egg


1/4 cup sliced almonds


2 tbsp sesame seeds





Method:


1:Placed blanched almonds and 6 tbsp of flour in a food processor,blender or nut grinder and process until finely ground.


2:With electric mixer,cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.Stir in vanilla extract.Add the ground almonds and remaining flour and mix well to form a dough.Gather into a ball,wrap in a wax paper, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or more.


3:Preheat oven to 325 F.Line 2 cookie sheets with wax paper.


4:Divide the dough into 4 equal parts.Working with one section of dough at a time,roll out to a thickness surface of 1/8 inch on a lightly floured surface. With a 2 1/2 inch fluted pastry cutter,stamp out circles.Gather the dough scraps,roll out, and stamp out more circles.Repeat with the remaining dough.


5: With the small end of a piping tip or with a 3/4 inch cutter,stamp out the centers from half the circles.Place dough rings and circles 1/2 inch apart on the prepared sheets.


6: Whisk the egg with salt until just frothy.Brush only the cookies rings with the white egg ,then sprinkle over the sliced almonds and sesame seeds.


7:Bake until very lightly browned,12-15 minutes.Let cool for a few minutes on the sheets before transferring to a rack.

8: Drop a teaspoon of nutella over the cookie circles and sandwich together with the rings.Store in an airtight container with sheets of wax paper between the layer .


Note:

You can use any fruits jam to sandwich this cookies to suit your taste.

And here, I would like to wish all my friends,family and beloved readers a Happy New Year 2009!! May all your wishes comes true and soon!
