Chocolate Almond Log Cookies

I've been so busy in the past 2 months that I haven't baked that much. I just moved to a new place, and am still unpacking boxes at the new place. I've managed to finally bake something new this weekend!

Chocolate almond logs - yum. They are kinda like macarons (which I hate making fyi), since it uses lots of almond powder...but these won't crack on you. =] They are crunchy on the outside, and a lil chewy inside. I liked them, give it a try if you are an almond lover!


Recipe:

Ingredients:
2 large egg whites
1 cup of super fine sugar
1 3/4 cups of almond powder
1/2 tsp almond extract
4 oz semi sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Beat the egg whites at high speed until stiff peaks form.
Using a rubber spatula, fold in sugar, almond powder, and almond extract.
Fill a pastry bag, fitted with 1/2 inch plain tip, and pipe out 3 inch long lines spaced 1 inch apart on prepared cookie sheets.

Bake until golden brown, 15-20 mins.
Transfer to cooling racks.

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over barely simmering water. Drizzle the chocolate in a zigzag pattern over the logs. Enjoy
