Honey Almond Stars

Yield:
about 3 dozen cookies.
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 2 1/2 cups allpurpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups almonds, ground fine in food processor
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • Juice of 1 lemon
Directions
  • In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and spices. In a large saucepan, heat 1/2 cup of the honey and sugars over low heat, stirring, just until sugars are dissolved. Remove pan from heat and let mixture cool slightly. In a large bowl, beat together eggs and extract. Beat in honey mixture and stir in ground almonds.

  • Stir in flour mixture to form a soft dough. Wrap dough in plastic and let stand at room temperature for 4 hours.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Divide dough into quarters and roll each flat to about 1/4 inch thick. Use starshaped cookie cutters to cut cookies and transfer to baking sheets, rerolling scraps as needed.

  • Place cookies in oven and immediately turn down to 325 degrees F. Bake for 1520 minutes, or until firm. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat remaining 1/4 cup of honey, corn syrup and lemon juice until it reaches a boil, about 3 minutes. When cookies are ready, remove them from the oven and brush warm cookies with the warm glaze. Transfer sheets of cookies to racks to cool.
