Soft Chocolate and Almond Cookies

It’s almost that time of year again where we heat up our ovens, mix together flour, butter and sugar and bake a batch of our favorite Christmas cookies. While I wouldn’t really classify these Soft Chocolate and Almond Cookies as only Christmas cookies, I wouldn’t be disappointed if someone handed me a plate of them.

The exterior of these cookies are crisp and then when you bite into it your teeth sink into a rich chocolatey center that is similar to a brownie.
