  • Total Time
    Prep: 25 min. Bake: 10 min.
  • Makes
    about 2 dozen

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 1/3 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup mixed candied fruit, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons shortening

Directions

  • In a saucepan, combine butter, milk, sugar and honey. Bring to a full boil. Remove from the heat; stir in almonds and fruit. Stir in flour until blended. Drop by tablespoonfuls 3 in. apart onto greased and floured baking sheets. Spread batter with a spoon to form 2-1/2-in. circles. Bake at 350° until edges are lightly browned, 6-9 minutes. Cool on pans for 1 minute before carefully removing to waxed paper to cool completely. For coating, combine chocolate chips and shortening in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat until melted. Spread 1 teaspoonful over the bottom of each cookie. When chocolate is almost set, draw wavy lines with a fork or cake decorating comb. Store in the refrigerator.

    Spread batter? I couldn't keep it all in one place! I've made crepe batter that was thicker than this.
