Pecan acorn cookies and chocolate-dipped chestnut sandwich cookies - Gourmet and Kinfolk

Soon it's Christmas and I've already baked and eaten dozens of cookies/biscuits this Advent season. I've made jamaretti (Martha Stewart), pecan sandies (Hummingbird Bakery), rugelach (Dorie Greenspan), gingerbread shapes (Primrose Bakery), spritz cookies (from this video), clodhoppers...

Now it is time for something new and different.

Yesterday, I was given a copy of the latest Kinfolk magazine for Xmas by the best colleague one could wish for, it's a delight to read. There is an article about cookies with recipes and this is the one I immediately wanted to bake. It helped that I had all the ingredients at home. I even attempted to temper the chocolate. Chestnut cream and chocolate, what's not to love? Exactly. Make these, you know you want to. And the magazine is great, this issue is about life in winter, slowing down and coming through rejuvenated.

The acorn cookies come from the Gourmet cookie book. This book is available second-hand online and is really great …
