Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the yolk and vanilla, then flour, salt and finely chopped almonds, mixing well. Shape the dough into 2 rolls, each 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap rolls and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
With a sharp knife, cut the dough into 1/4-inch thick slices. Place 1 to 2 inches apart on baking sheets and bake 8-10 minutes, just until lightly browned. Cool.
In the top of a double boiler, melt the chocolate and butter for the topping. Add the hot water and stir until smooth. Dip an edge of each cookie into the chocolate and cool.
