Almond Chocolate Cookies

Cookies with melted chocolate. Good as a teatime treat


  • 500 ml cake flour
  • 100 g almonds blanch and peel
  • 15 ml water
  • Ad
  • 200 g butter
  • 50 ml castor* sugar
  • 100 g slab dark chocolate
  • castor sugar for coating

*Castor sugar is more commonly referred to as superfine or 10X sugar in the U.S.


Cream the butter and sugar and add water, mix until smooth and creamy. Add flour and mix well and form into a soft dough. Cut the chocolate into pieces. Divide the dough into small balls, just to cover the almond and chocolate. After putting the almond and chocolate in the center, roll into a ball and flatten slightly.

Grease a baking tray and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees C (350 degrees F) for 15-20 minutes. Sprinkle castor sugar while hot.

This sounds so good and I can look up the measurement conversion but is castor sugar the same as powdered sugar? I looked it up but all definitions said finely granulated and just wondering if that means powdered? Would really like to try this! :-)

Castor sugar is what is called Bakers Sugar in the states it is superfine granulated sugar you can make your own by processing it in the food processor for several pulses. It is not powdered sugar if you use powdered sugar your final product won't be the same.
