    Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

    In the bowl of a food processor, combine the almonds, sugar,
    flour and butter. Pulse lightly until the almonds are ground
    and the mixture is homogenous. Place the mixture in a mixing

    Using a tablespoon, place small scoops of the mixture on a
    lightly greased baking sheet, separating each scoop by at
    least 1" on all sides. Use the tips of your fingers to
    gently flatten the tops of each scoop. Bake for 10 to 12
    minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool to room

    Once the cookies have cooled, gently melt the chocolate in
    the bowl of a bain-marie (a stainless steel bowl fitted over
    a saucepan of simmering water s that the bowl just touches
    the water). Remove the melted chocolate from the heat.
    Carefully pour or spoon a bit of melted chocolate on the
    tops of half the cookies. If the tops are not flat enough,
    simply spoon the melted chocolate on the sides of the
    cookies that were face down during the cooking process. Use
    the remaining cookie halves to form the other half of the
    cookie "sandwich," pressing gently so that the chocolate
    adheres to both sides of the sandwich. Let rest until the
    chocolate has cooled, holding the cookies together.
