A deceptively simple recipe, the Austrian Ischler combines ground almonds in the dough with apricots and chocolate filling. The combination makes for an outstanding cookie, first nutty and crumbly, then that fruity and chocolate finish.
They are divine! The Ischler and the Glocker Bâtards are close cousins in flavor, with the Ischler striking the additional chocolate note. If I had to choose between the two of them, I prefer the Glocker Bâtards.
GIVEAWAY THIS WEEK!!
Rose’s fans probably remember her post about the Crack ‘Em, a little spoon rest with a built in ridge to make cracking eggs quick, clean and completely foolproof. I really like this little gadget, and thought it would be fun to share one with a fellow baking enthusiast! So, everyone who leaves me a comment anywhere on my blog until Saturday, December 20 will be entered to win a Crack ‘Em. Thanks for visiting and good luck!
