  • Use high-quality ingredients. Choose quality dark chocolate and almonds.
  • Instead of dark chocolate, you can use milk chocolate for a sweeter taste. You can use both dark chocolate and milk chocolate if you wish.
  • Toast the almonds. Toasting the almonds before adding them to the cookie dough enhances their nutty flavor and makes them more crunchy. Spread the almonds on a baking sheet and toast in the oven at 175 °C (350 °F) for 8-10 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  • Measure the flour correctly. You can use a kitchen scale or measuring cup to measure the flour. Flatten the flour with the back of the knife. In this way, you can make more accurate measurements. Otherwise, too much flour can cause the cookie dough to become tough.
  • Use ingredients at room temperature. To bring egg, butter, and milk-based ingredients to room temperature, let them sit at room temperature for at least one hour before using them. In this way, the dough will have an even texture.
  • You can use granulated sugar, brown sugar, honey, maple syrup or any sweeteners.
  • To make these cookies gluten-free, you can use gluten-free flour instead of regular all purpose flour.
  • Do not over mix the dough. Mix the dough until the ingredients are combined. Otherwise, the cookie may be hard and dry.
  • Use a cookie scoop or ice cream scoop to place the dough on the baking sheet. This ensures that the cookies are of even size and bake evenly.
  • Place the cookies evenly on the baking tray. The cookies will spread as they bake.
  • Chill the dough. Refrigerate the cookie dough for at least 30 minutes before baking. This helps the cookies hold their shape and prevents them from spreading too much in the oven.
  • Preheat the oven. Make sure the oven is fully warmed up before you start baking the cookies. This ensures that the cookies bake evenly.
  • Place parchment paper or a silicone baking mat on the baking sheet. This prevents the cookies from sticking.
  • Make sure the baking tray is at room temperature. Otherwise, an overheated baking sheet may cause the cookie dough to spread.
  • Do not overcook the cookies. Check constantly while the cookies are baking. Otherwise, the cookie may be hard and dry.
  • Let the cookies cool. Let them cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack. This will harden the cookies and prevent them from falling apart.
