Courtesy of Hershey Pastry Chef Thomas Pratt

INGREDIENTS

Dough:

2.25 ounces almond paste
8 ounces of butter, unsalted
4.75 ounces granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon of almond extract
1 teaspoon coconut extract
1 egg
3 ounces coconut, sweet flakes
10 ounces all-purpose flour

Glaze:

6 ounces Hershey’s semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 ounce butter, unsalted
1.4 ounces light corn syrup

Garnish:

5 ounces smokehouse almonds, whole

DIRECTIONS:

  • Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees
  • To make the dough: Cream the almond paste and butter. Add the sugar, salt and extracts.  Add the egg, then the coconut and
    flour, just until mixed.
  • Scoop with a small scoop and bake, approximately 14 minutes, until lightly browned on the edges.
  • Place cookies on a rack with parchment underneath.
  • To make the glaze: Melt the chocolate chips over a double boiler, add the butter and corn syrup.  Whisk until smooth.
  • Pour the chocolate glaze over the cookies and allow to set up.
  • To garnish: Chop almonds into small pieces and add to the top of each cookie while the glaze is still warm.

Tip: Be careful not to get your chocolate to0 hot and stir until melted to prevent the chocolate from seizing up:

The chocolate on the left is what the chocolate should look like.
The chocolate on the right is what happens when it gets too hot.

These were really delish!
When you try these let us know what you think!
