Desserts

Ingredients:

  • 2 c Sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 c Butter or margarine; softened
  • 1/4 c Honey
  • 3/4 ts Almond extract
  • 1 1/2 c Finely chopped blanched almonds
  • Confectioner's sugar

Directions:

Sift together flour and salt. Work butter in a bowl until creamy; add honey and beat until well blended. Add almond extract. Gradually add sifted dry ingredients, beating well after each addition. Stir in nuts. Cover and chill about 1 hour. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Shape teaspoonfuls of dough into 1-inch balls and place on ungreased cookie sheets about 1-1/2 inches apart. Bake 12-15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Roll cookies in confectioner's sugar while still warm, and again when cooled. Makes about 7 dozen cookies.
