Posted by Nancy G
The first recipe I looked at was from cooks.com. It's nearly identical to Renee's recipe, with the exception of adding almond extract, and more chocolate/butter drizzle.
Sacher Torte Cookies
1 c. butter; softened
1 3.9 oz. pkg. instant pudding mix
1 tsp. almond extract
2 c. flour
3 tbsp. sugar
1/2 c. apricot preserves
1 c. semisweet chocolate chips
6 tbsp. butter; melted
Preheat oven to 325º.
Combine butter and pudding mix. Cream together until fluffy. Beat in egg and almond extract. Gradually add flour, beating at low speed, until dough forms. Shape into 1-inch balls and roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 15-18 minutes.
Imprint each cookie in center. Remove immediately. Cool. Fill cookies with preserves, 1/2 teaspoon in each. Blend chips and melted butter. Put ½ teaspoon chocolate on top.
