Almond Sugar Cookies

Cook time 8 mins
Yield 3 dozen 3-inch cookies


  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 cup Almonds, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 3/4 cup Granulated Sugar, plus 3 tablespoons for coating
  • 1/2 cup Canola Oil
  • 2 Large Eggland's Best eggs
  • 2 tablespoons Honey
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla

How to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly oil or coat two large baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

    Whisk together the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, almonds, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl and set aside.

    In a separate bowl, combine the sugar, canola oil, eggs, honey, and vanilla, and beat on medium speed until well blended, about 2 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl if necessary.

    At low speed, gradually beat in the dry ingredients until just combined.

    Place the 3 tablespoons granulated sugar on a plate or in a shallow bowl. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and coat evenly with the sugar. Place the cookies on the prepared baking sheets, leaving space in between. Flatten the cookies gently with the back of a fork.

    Bake for about 8 minutes, until golden brown. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack and cool for 5 minutes before serving. Repeat with the remaining batter.
