Almond and Honey Cookies

Minoo made these Almond and Honey Cookies in the Caring Place Community Kitchen upon Ada’s request. Most of the time, it’s a challenge to get the members of the community kitchen to volunteer to demonstrate. Most of them are very shy. So, instead of asking for volunteer to demonstrate, Minoo will ask what we would like to learn. It’s not easy being a leader of the community kitchen.


This Almond and Honey Cookie is the puff up type, light and yet you can get the crunch from the crushed almonds.


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup almonds, crushed or blended (not too fine)

  3. Delicious! I toasted the almonds to get more flavour and drizzled a bit of icing (icing sugar, water, almond extract) to make them fancier.
