At Home: Chocolate Almond Sugar Cookies

*Sponsored Post
This next installment of What Micky Eats...At Home features my use of a new embossed rolling pin that I received from Jessica of Embossed Co. to add some flare to my baking creations. Being a HuMom to my sweet Babka, she sent me the "Paw Prints" design, which I found to be super cute!  With Halloween coming up, I thought I'd emphasize the paw prints design by making a cat-shaped cookie, and use cocoa powder mixed into my flour for a darker color. To punch up the bitter sweetness of the cocoa powder, I combined it with almond extract to create these Chocolate Almond Sugar Cookies.

Emilie's is Chef Kevin Tien's newest endeavor in honor of his uncle's family name and features an ecclectic mix of food from the kitchen or ready-made and pushed around on rolling carts.  With a fusion feel and every dish offering a 'slap' of spice in some form or fashion, this restaurant will be a popular spot in Capitol Hill.  Closest Metro is Eastern Market.

The Shortmarket Club

The Shortmarket Club has a luxe old-world feel with many of the dishes presented as modern interpretations of classics. The restaurant works closely with local suppliers for all of their ingredients, which in turn inspire the menus. The opulent space features accents from local artists, married with meticulously-sourced vintage pieces, such as military-style lamps and stained glass. Consistently appearing in Eat Out’s Top 20 restaurants, The Shortmarket Club has set the bar for a more interesting and exciting food scene. For our last dinner in Cape Town, we opted for the tasting menu with wine pairing.
