Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chestnut puree
  • 1/3 cup butter softened
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 oz bittersweet chocolate melted
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Garnish:
  • 2 oz bittersweet chocolate melted
  • 2 tablespoons whole almonds thinly sliced

Method

Line 2 rimless baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

In large bowl, beat together chestnut pur? butter and sugar until light and fluffy; beat in egg yolk and chocolate until combined.

In separate bowl, whisk flour with cinnamon; add to butter mixture, about one-third at a time, stirring to make smooth dough. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Using scant 1 tbsp (15 mL) for each, roll dough into 2-1/2-inch (6 cm) long fingers; place, about 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on prepared pans.

Bake in top and bottom thirds of 350°F (180°C) oven, rotating and switching pans halfway through, until firm and pale brown on bottoms, about 20 minutes. Let cool on pan on rack.

Garnish: Dip 1 end of each cookie in chocolate; place on parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with almonds; refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container and store for up to 1 week.)
