Chocolate Almond Sables

Chocolate almond Christmas cookies
My love for Bon Apetit knows no bounds. I’ve yet to meet a recipe of theirs that I don’t love! They always seem to be on point, and this rings particularly true for these chocolate almond sables. Over the weekend, my family got together to participate in our yearly Christmas bake-a-thon. This year, I decided to whip up these bad boys. Though the original recipe called for pistachios (which would have been delicious in their own right), I decided to throw in some sliced almonds instead (mostly because I already had all of the ingredients, sans pistachios, on hand). The results are simply delicious. These babies would fall under the realm of the sophisticated adult cookie. You know the ones! They aren’t too sweet, full of rich flavour, and pair perfectly with a Christmas movie and a big ol’ mug of hot tea.

  1. 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  2. ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  3. ¾ tsp. salt
  4. ¼ tsp. baking soda
  5. 1¼ cups (2½ sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  6. 1¼ cups (lightly packed) brown sugar
  7. 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  8. 1 large egg white
  9. 5 oz. good quality semisweet chocolate, chopped
  10. 1 cup slivered almonds, roughly chopped
  11. Flaky sea salt (such as maldon or fleur de sel)
  1. 1. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda.
  2. 2. In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer, beat together sugar, butter and vanilla until light and fluffy (around 4 minutes). Reduce speed to low and gradually add your dry ingredients - mixed until just combined. Add the egg white, and mix again on low until just combined.
  3. 3. Fold in chocolate chunks and slivered almonds.
  4. 4. Divide dough into 4 parts. Roll each part to form a 8" long x 1.5" wide roll. Cover tightly with plastic wrap or parchment paper and refrigerate 2-4 hours until solid.
  5. 5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place oven racks in lower and upper third of oven. Using a sharp knife, cut chilled dough into 1/4" thick slices. Place on two baking sheets, sprinkle with flaky salt and place in oven.
  6. 6. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until centers look dry, rotating baking sheets on racks halfway through.
