Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour (5 ounces)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract, optional
  • 6 (1.55-ounce) Hershey's milk chocolate bars, the regular size
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons white sanding sugar, or granulated sugar

Instructions

  • Using an electric mixer with a paddle attachment, beat butter, cream cheese, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  • Add vanilla and beat until mixed in.
  • Add the salt to the flour and then add the flour to the butter mixture in 2 additions, stopping to scrape down the sides of bowl. Beat just until the flour is incorporated into the mixture.
  • Place dough on a piece of plastic wrap, shape into a disk about 6 inches in diameter, wrap fully, and refrigerate for 1 to 24 hours.
  • Place oven racks in upper-middle and lower-middle positions and heat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Break 5 of the chocolate bars apart at the seams so you have a total of 20 pieces.
  • Roll dough on a lightly floured surface into a 20 by 8-inch rectangle. Cut dough into twenty 2 by 4-inch rectangles.
  • Place a piece of chocolate crosswise across each piece of dough. Chocolate should overhang the edges some. Fold dough around chocolate and place on prepared baking sheets seam side down.
  • Brush tops with egg and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until golden brown, switching and rotating baking sheets halfway through. Let cookies cool 5 minutes and then remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  • Break remaining chocolate bar into pieces, place in a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave on 50% power for about 1 minute. Stir and drizzle on cookies.
