Almond caramel bars - a christmas cookie recipe

Today I want to share a little cookie recipe with you.
Originally I wanted to post about a gorgious painting of mine but since I am not done yet I guess it has to wait until tomorrow. So, if you're curious about the painting, come back tomorrow. I promise, you won't regret it - unless you don't like colorful paintings - well, no, scratch that - you will like it ;)

So, actually, I planned on posting about these delicious, both gooey and crunchy cookies earlier but there has always been something more important to post about.

2-3 cups of flour, all-purpose
1 cup of butter (equals 2 sticks)
1 1/5 cup of icing sugar
1 small egg
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup of whipped cream
5 tsp honey
1/2 cup of butter (equals 1 stick)
3 cups of flaked almonds

3 cups of finely chopped semi sweet chocolate
1/2 cup milk

Mix flour, butter, sugar, egg, vanilla extract and salt in a bowl and knead dough until it forms a proper ball. Refridgerate for about half an hour.

In the meantime mix cream, honey and butter in a pot, bring to a boil and add flaked almonds.

Roll out the dough on a baking sheet and spread it with the almond mix.
Bake at 320 fahrenheit for about 30-35 min.

Cool on a wire rack (overnight). Once it cooled down cut into little triangles.

Melt chocolate in a pot, add milk and stir carefully until it is smooth and glossy. Dip one end of each bar in the melted chocolate.  Wait until the chocolate has hardened. Enjoy.



  1. yum!

  2. they were so yummy. :)
    so sad that there are only two bars left. :(


Feel free to leave some love.
