Ingredients
  1. 1 cup whole almonds, toasted
  2. 1 ¼ cups whole-wheat pastry flour
  3. 1 cup all-purpose flour
  4. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  5. ½ teaspoon salt
  6. 2/3 cup plus 1/4 cup honey, *divided
  7. 1/3 cup canola oil
  8. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature, *divided
  9. 1 large egg
  10. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  11. 3 tablespoons toasted sliced almonds
Instructions
  1. 1. In a blender, process whole almonds until finely ground and transfer to a large bowl
  2. 2. Next, add whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt; stir until just combined. Beat 2/3 cup of honey, oil and 3 tablespoons butter in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until well combined. Add egg and vanilla and beat until blended.
  3. 3. Then add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients; stir to combine and refrigerate the dough for 1 hour.
  4. 4. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray or line with parchment paper or nonstick baking mats.
  5. 5. Roll tablespoons of dough into 1-inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Press the tip of your index finger in the center of each cookie to make an indentation. Bake the cookies, in batches, until set and barely golden on the bottom, 13 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool for 30 minutes.
  6. 6. Combine the remaining ¼ cup honey and 1 tablespoon butter in a small bowl until creamy. Use about ¼ teaspoon to fill each cookie and top with 2 sliced almonds, if desired.
