I have had this recipe on my blog-to-do-list for about a year now. Shame on me, is all that I can say. Because the only reason for this delay: Somebody said somewhere that this recipe is super difficult! It might even have been on one of these bake off tv shows. But let’s throw our fears over board and do it!
Choklad biskvier (chocolate biscuits)
200 g almond paste
1 egg white
50 g dark chocolate
125 g butter
1 1/2 dl powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla sugar
1 egg yolk
150 g dark chocolate
Grind the almond paste and mix it together with the egg white, blend until smooth. Now this part is optional. I put the paste into a piping bag and made 3 cm wide cookies directly on the baking plate, but you can do it with spoons as well. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes under 175°C.
Now melted dark chocolate, butter, powdered sugar and vanilla sugar are blended into a frosting like paste. Wait until the cookies have cooled down, flip them upside down and spread some chocolate paste onto every cookie. Try to make it look like a pointy hat.
While you melt the rest of the dark chocolate, place the cookies in the fridge so the paste doesn’t get too soft while waiting. When the chocolate is melted, dip every “chocolate paste hat” into the bowl of chocolate, flip it over again and let it dry. TIP: put the glazed cookies in the fridge as fast as you can, so the warm chocolate doesn’t melt the chocolate paste.
I guess after all the difficult part was to make them look good. This is my first try and they kind of look like an accident. But nevertheless, they tasted divine! And that is all that matters.
