2 ounces unsweetened chocolate
1/3 cup butter, cubed
1 cup sugar
1 egg

1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup finely chopped almonds
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1-1/4 cups confectioners' sugar
3 to 4 tablespoons milk

In a microwave, melt chocolate and butter; stir until smooth. In a large bowl, beat the sugar, egg, yolk, extract and chocolate mixture. Gradually add flour and mix well. Stir in nuts. Shape into 3/4-in. balls and place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until set. Cool.

For glaze, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate and butter; stir until smooth. Add the extract, sugar and milk and mix well. Dip tops of cookies into glaze; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. Store in airtight containers. Makes 2-3 dozen.
