Aunt Gisele's Caramel Cookies
- 1/2 pound butter
- 2 egg yolks
- 1 cup sugar
- Scant 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 cups unsifted flour
- 1/2 pound sliced blanched almonds
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 3 tablespoons milk
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 15 1/2 by 10 1/2 by 1-inch jelly roll pan; set aside.
Meanwhile cook the almonds, sugar, butter, honey and milk, stirring on occasion, until the mixture is light golden.
Remove baked dough; spread almonds mixture over the top and bake for 15 to 20 minutes longer until dark golden. Cool and cut into squares or rectangles (be sure to cut the cookies before they turn too hard.)
