Chocolate Coated Almond Cookies

This is an interesting recipe and most importantly, it tastes fantastic! Esp the chocolate coating on the cookie.. it's heavenly! But pardon me for my bad photos here as I couldn't resist eating them rightaway so I hurried through the photography process :)

(made some choco chip cookies as well)

60g butter (softened)
50g caster sugar
1/2 egg (estimation)
75g plain flour (sifted)
40g ground almond
60g dark chocolate (Lindt is good!)

Preheat oven to 200deg C. Cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg and almonds. Pour in flour and mix well. Spoon batter (in 20 cent coin size) onto tray with grease proof paper. Bake for 10 min. Double boil the chocolate. After baking, leave cookies to cool in pan for 2 min before transferring to a cooling rack to cool further for 30min. Once cooled, dip it into chocolate and let it set. Ready for consumption!

note: you may choose to refrigerate the cookies to further set the chocolate. I reckon it shouldn't affect the texture of the cookies
