Almond Horn Cookies - Small Batch and Heavenly
I recently went to Philadelphia for a continuing education course. I spent the night and woke up extremely early in order to visit the Reading Terminal Market before the course. When there, I found a bakery selling amazing baked treats. Among my purchase was an Almond Horn. To say the least, I fell in love instantly. The cookie was crispy but had a chewy inside. The almond flavoring with chocolate dipped tips were to die for. I had a second one for my mom, and it took all my power not to eat it myself.
I set out to find a recipe for Almond horns. I was surprised to find that almost every recipe yielded a very small number of horns. The recipe I settled on was supposed to make 6 cookies. I was able to make 10 cookies from the recipe. I was satisfied with the size, and am planning to make the cookies again.
Here is the recipe. Look below for step by step photo instructions with tips and tricks!
I had a lot of glaze let over. I at it with my husband over ice cream. It's so good you can make the sauce one day just for a quick and upscale topping for a weeknight dessert.
