  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 1 servings
     1/2 c  Salted butter; room
     3/4 c  Sugar
       1 lg Egg
       1 ts Almond extract
     1/4 c  Ground pecans
       1 c  Sliced almonds
       1 c  All-purpose flour
     1/4 c  Heavy cream
       1 ts Almond liqueur
       1 c  Semisweet chocolate chips
       2 ts Dark corn syrup
       Preheat oven to 350. In medium mixing bowl, blend butter and sugar with
   electric mixer. Add egg and almond extract. Beat until light and fluffy.
   Add ground pecans and flour and blend at low speed. Form dough into 2-inch
   balls. Roll in sliced almonds and coat each well. Place balls on ungreased
   cookie sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake 15 minutes or until cookies are
   slightly golden brown. Transfer quickly to smooth, flat surface to cool.
       Glaze: Scald cream in saucepan and remove from heat. Stir in chocolate
   chips, liqueur, and corn syrup and cover. Let stand for 15 minutes. Whisk
   glaze until smooth, being careful not to stir too vigorously. Drizzle
   patterns on cooled cookies. Dip some cookies halfway into chocolate. Chill
   cookies on waxed paper until chocolate has set. If you don't want to use
   alcohol in this recipe, substitute with almond extract.
