Chocolate Almond Logs

My friend Amanda brought these!

What you need:

1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temperature)
1 egg (room temperature)
1 tsp almond extract
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup white chocolate chips

How to make them:

Preheat oven to 375˚F.
Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a bowl of an electric mixer combine shortening, sugar, butter, and egg until fluffy.
In a separate bowl sift together the flour, cocoa powder, and salt.
Add flour mixture and almond extract to the butter mixture mix until combined.
Form dough into small logs.
Bake for 9 minutes.
Let cool on pan for 3 minutes then on wire rack until completely cooled.
Melt white chocolate chips in microwave for 30 seconds on HIGH, stir, microwave again if needed for 15 seconds.
Dip one end of the baked logs into the melted chocolate, garnish with sprinkles, then ENJOY!
