HONEY ALMOND COOKIES

The kids (and the grown-ups too) will love these delicious honey-almond cookies.

Makes 4 dozen cookies

INGREDIENTS:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup butter or stick margarine, softened
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 large egg white
Cooking spray
1/4 cup sliced almonds, chopped

Instructions:
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife.

Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.

Combine sugar, honey, butter, and oil in a bowl; beat at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended.

Add extracts and egg white to sugar mixture.

Beat until well-blended. Stir in flour mixture (dough will be sticky).

Coat hands lightly with cooking spray; divide dough into 2 equal portions.

Shape each portion into a 9-inch log.

Wrap logs individually in plastic wrap; freeze 3 hours or until firm.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F/190 degrees C. Cut each log into twenty-four 1/4-inch-thick slices, and place 1 inch apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray.

Press almonds into cookies. Bake at 375 degrees F for 9 minutes.

Cool 2 minutes or until firm.

Remove cookies from pans; cool on wire racks.
