Tis the season for baking. I set out to make Almond Crescent Cookies dipped in chocolate. I couldn’t nail a perfect crescent shape. When the first batch came out of the oven it was even worse. No crescents just big letter “C”s or brackets “[“. When things don’t go according to plan I improvise. I took the classic Almond Crescent and turned it into these Chocolate Dipped Almond Cookies. You can shape this dough into crescents but if you end up with fat C’s, rounded is the way to go!

In between baking there is decorating. I am absolutely in love with this Frozen Pine Wreath from Balsam Hill. 

These chocolate almond cookies are so good. The semi sweet chocolate and the sprinkle of ground almonds take these cookies over the top! These make about 2 dozen. I sent a dozen to my husbands work and some over to a friend in the neighborhood. If you make Holiday Cookie boxes you will want to put Chocolate Dipped Almond Cookies in them.

Recipe Tips for Chocolate Dipped Almond Cookies

Ground whole almonds in a blender or food processor.

Refrigerate cookie dough if you are not rolling the cookie dough balls out all at once. For example if you are only using one baking sheet at a time, refrigerate dough during the baking time.

You can shape the dough into crescents to make Almond Crescents.

Do not grease your cookie sheet.

Let cookies cool before dipping them into the melted chocolate.

I only dipped the front side of the cookie. In my opinion both sides dipped was too much chocolate for the cookie. This is my opinion but you can certainly dip the whole half of the cookie in the chocolate.

Microwave your chocolate chips in 30 second intervals. Stirring in between intervals. You don’t want to burn your chocolate.

After you have dipped the cookies and sprinkled them with the ground almonds put them in the freezer for the chocolate to set faster.

    1. Sorry Mary, I just started using a new Recipe Template and 2 ingredients were missing. The vanilla and flour. I have updated the template. Sorry about that!
