Almond Mocha Surprise Cookies
The recipe title gives away the surprise, but you don't have to tell folks what the recipe's called.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, instant coffee and salt. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, cream the butter with the brown sugar. Add the eggs, and beat until very light and smooth. Stir in the almond extract.
Gradually stir in the flour mixture, blending well. Refrigerate the dough for 1 to 2 hours.
Shape the dough into balls using about 1 tablespoon of dough for each. Press 1 almond into each ball, completely covering it with dough.
Place about 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Cool on racks, and prepare the Mocha Glaze.
With tongs, dip each cookie into the hot glaze coating just the top surface of the cookie. Let dry on racks.
Makes 48 cookies.
Prep time: 25 minutes; Cooking time: 10-12 minutes; Total time: 2 hours 35 minutes
