This sweet treat makes a perfect holiday cookie recipe. Topped with a whole almond, each cookie is not only well presented, but it tastes scrumptious, too.

Ingredients

  • WET MIXTURE:

    50 almonds, blanched, divided 

    1 cup butter

    3/4 cup honey

    1 egg, beaten

    1/2 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Almond Extract

    1/2 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Vanilla Extract 

     

    DRY MIXTURE: 

    2 1/2 cups flour

    1 1/2 teaspoons Frontier Co-op Baking Powder

    1/8 teaspoon Frontier Co-op Sea Salt

  •  

     

Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. Grind 14 of the almonds to a fine powder.
    3. Cream butter and honey together. Add egg, ground almonds, and extracts.
    4. In another bowl, sift flour, baking powder and salt.
    5. Add dry mixture gradually to wet ingredients. Knead into a dough. (Add a drop of water or flour one at a time if necessary to make a kneadable consistency.)
    6. Pinch off small balls of dough and place on greased cookie sheet. Press flat into 1/2-inch thickness. Make an indentation in top of each cookie and place a whole almond in each.
    7. Bake for 15 minutes.
