One of my favorite cookies to make around Rosh Hashanah, Honey Almond Cookies are awesome any time of year. Slightly sweet with nutty, toasty flavor, they're wonderful as a snack or at the end of a special meal.

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Large pinch of salt

  5. Press a few slivered almonds into the top of each cookie and pop in the freezer for at least 4 hours (if you’d like to store them longer before baking, place them in zip-top bags and keep frozen)
