Little blue-gray beads add a nutty flavor and a crunchy texture to shortbread-style dough in this cookie. Adimando dips them about one-third of the way into a bowl of sweet melted chocolate; you could also then sprinkle them with sesame seeds or chopped, toasted almonds. To make these treats suitable for stacking in a cookie jar, let them sit out overnight to make sure the chocolate's completely set.
