Chocolate Almond Cookies

These are wonderfully crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle, I like the more delicate texture of grated chocolate here, but use chips or chunks if you prefer.

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 stick butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/4 cups flour + pinch salt
1 cup grated dark chocolate
1 cup whole almonds, roughly chopped

1. Preheat the oven to 300 F, line your baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat.

2. In a bowl, cream the sugars and the butter together until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla. Stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt, then add to the mix. Fold in the chocolate and nuts.

3. Drop the batter by heaping tablespoons on the baking sheets. Bake 18 minutes or until pale golden brown.
