Almond London Cookies

No story today, I'm extremely busy meeting customers orders all the stock must go out in next few days, I have tried this recipe from Mat Gebu's Dapur Tanpa Sempadan. This is a very simple recipe but very time consuming because I prepared more than 500 pieces, I don't know how this cookies got its name but I'm sure its not available in London. 


Let's look at the recipe;

Ingredients: (Recipe Yields-300 pcs)

250 g of butter
550 g of all purpose flour
140 g of castor sugar
1 tsp of emplex (for cookies crispiness-I didn't add)
300 pcs of whole almond ( baked for 10 minutes)
2 egg yolk ( I have used whole eggs)
1 tsp of vanilla extract
300 pcs of small paper cups


Topping:

600 g of cooking chocolate
1 tbsp of vegetable shortening
50 g of almond nibs (baked for 5 minutes)


Whisk butter, sugar, vanilla extract, eggs incorporate well


Add flour knead the dough well until soft and pliable


Take 1 whole almond and wrap some dough covering it, per piece should be 5g each 
and arrange on a baking tray, bake at 150 degree for 10- 15 minutes


All perfectly baked, set aside to cool down while we prepare the topping


Double-boil the cooking chocolate and once it completely melted turn off the flame 
and add the shortening for shine, I kept the bowl over the water bath until I completely 
finish decorating the cookie as the chocolate will harden if left too long outside


Arrange cookie on a small paper cup 


Spoon over some melted chocolate over the cookie


Drain the excess chocolate


Cookie well coated in melted chocolate


Add some almond nibs and let the chocolate harden


Cookie coated in melted chocolate and almond nibs


All the cookies should be arrange very near to achieve the oval shape, 
once chocolate harden transfer to a container and seal tight

Do try and let me know how it turned out!
