Punishments Indeed

Borrowed Smitten Kitchen’s Punitions recipe for some cookie slinging tonight:


These are thin buttery cookies that are generally sandwiched together with ganache:


And make no mistake, they’re completely delicious this way, but I had in mind something a little different:


An approximation of Pepperidge Farm’s Geneva cookie, except this one is done with semi-sweet chocolate and crushed almonds.  

Melt 1 cup of semi-sweet chips with 1 tsp of shortening, microwave until goopy (1 to 2 minutes).  Dip cookies (or spread lightly with a knife/spatula) then sprinkle with crushed almonds.

Either way they’re absolutely delicious.  The cookie has a texture somewhere between a regular sugar cookie and shortbread and I can see using it in endless different ways.
