2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup butter or stick margarine, softened
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 large egg white
Cooking spray
1/4 cup sliced almonds, chopped


Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Combine sugar, honey, butter, and oil in a bowl; beat at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended. Add extracts and egg white to sugar mixture. Beat until well-blended. Stir in flour mixture (dough will be sticky).

Coat hands lightly with cooking spray; divide dough into 2 equal portions. Shape each portion into a 9-inch log. Wrap logs individually in plastic wrap; freeze 3 hours or until firm.

Preheat oven to 375°.

Cut each log into 24 (1/4-inch) slices, and place 1 inch apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Press almonds into cookies. Bake at 375° for 9 minutes. Cool 2 minutes or until firm. Remove cookies from pans; cool on wire racks.
