Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/3 cup HERSHEY'S Cocoa or HERSHEY'S SPECIAL DARK Cocoa
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 2/3 cup sliced almonds

Directions

  • 1. Melt butter in small saucepan; remove from heat. Add cocoa; blend well. Beat sugar, eggs and vanilla in large bowl; blend in cocoa mixture. Stir together flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; add to cocoa mixture, beating until smooth. Refrigerate dough about 1 hour or until firm enough to roll.

Cut into pine cone shapes using 2 or 2-1/2-inch oval cookie cutter. Place on prepared cookie sheet; lightly brush cookies with corn syrup. Arrange almonds in pinecone fashion; lightly drizzle or brush almonds with corn syrup. Repeat with remaining dough.
