These cookies are chewy and chocolaty with a great taste of almond. I think these have to be one of the best cookies I've tasted.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

What a great twist on a classic chocolate chip cookie. The almond paste really adds a rich almond flavor. A perfect flavor combination with the chocolate chips. Almond slivers give the cookie a slight crunch. From the smell of these baking, we couldn't wait for them to come out of the oven. They did not last long in the kitchen.

Note: Almond paste is hard but break it down easily by pulsing in your food processor a few times. The Test Kitchen
