TWD: Chocolate Spice Quickies

Back to cookies this week -- a good thing. Especially, when they are slice and bake cookies, meaning I can bake them when I feel like it.


These treats are full of almond bits and have a hint of spice. I increased the amount of spice (allspice and cloves) in the dough, so I ended up with a 1/4 teaspoon of each one. Not too overpowering, but a nice background note to the chocolate and almonds.


They didn't spread noticeably during baking, another good thing. All in all, they are a nice cookie for snacking and eating with tea or coffee or the beverage of your choice.


This week's hostess was Jessica of My Baking Heart. You'll find the recipe on her website.




Pop over to the Tuesdays with Dorie blog to read about more cookies.

Yours are just perfect, and I love them on that swirly plate even more! When I was mixing up the dough I thought all my almonds were ground too finely and I would not get these pretty specks in the cookie, but magic happened and I did...I was so excited. Yours specks look lovely, too.

Looks good! I was sure that these would spread, so I was pleases to see them looking so good when I opened the oven door.
