How it's made: the cookies

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. 
  2. Use a food processor or high speed blender to make almond powder out of the almonds. 
  3. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl. 
  4. Make balls of batter the size of a ping-pong ball and place them on a baking sheet covered in parchment paper. 
  5. Press lightly on each ball with the palm of your hand, so the cookies are each about 1/3 inch think. 
  6. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes max. They should be lightly browned on the edges and light in the center. It's normal if they're still soft when you take them out of the oven, and they'll harden as they cool, while still staying soft in the middle. Let them cool completely.

How It's Made: "Ice Cream" Filling

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a food processor, mix all the ingredients until smooth and creamy. Spread the chocolate cream on 6 cookies, and use the remaining 6 to make a sandwich out of them. 
  2. For an optional garnish, chop up some almonds and roll the cookie sandwich edges in them. Cool the sandwiches in the freezer for 15 minutes and enjoy!
  3. Keep in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 2 weeks.
