Basler Brunsli (Chocolate Almond Cookie)
Source: http://www.pastrywiz.com

1 1/2 cups natural almonds (8oz)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar
6 oz semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chopped
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
2 large egg whites

In a food processor combine almonds with sugars until ground fine. Add chocolate and mix until fine. (Do not overmix or chocolate will melt.) Add spices and egg whites and mix until dough comes together. Chill dough for about 1/2 hour.

On a surface covered with sugar, roll dough to about 1/2 inch thickness. Cut out cookies with a 2 inch cookie cutter (heart or star shaped) and transfer onto baking pan lined with parchment paper.

Preheat oven to 350 F. Put cookies into the oven and reduce the temperature to 325 F. Bake for 15 minutes or until firm. Be careful not to overbake or the cookies will be too hard.
