2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

Heat oven to 350°F. Line 13x9-inch baking pan with aluminum foil, extending foil over edges. Spray foil with no-stick cooking spray; set aside.
Combine all crust ingredients in bowl; beat at low speed until crumbly and dough starts to form. Press into prepared pan. Bake 18-22 minutes or until light golden brown and set.
Combine all topping ingredients except almonds in 2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, 5-6 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 4-5 minutes or until candy thermometer reaches 240°F or small amount of mixture dropped into ice water forms a soft ball. Stir in almonds.
Spoon mixture evenly over partially baked crust. Continue baking 12-15 minutes or until bubbly and almonds are golden brown. Cool completely. Remove from pan using foil ends; peel off foil. Cut into 24 squares. Cut each square in half diagonally.
- A nonstick saucepan works well for cooking the topping.
- These elegant little triangles are a quick idea for a cookie exchange.

This recipe is excellent. Super hit with my family at Christmas. I also did them for 8 dozen cookie exchange. My only tweek, is to use parchment paper instead of foil. I fold the edges of the paper up to make a 13X9 rectangle.
I like to try new recipes at Christmas.. Tried these cookies in 2012 , and we loved them sooooo much that I made them this past Christmas also.. This is one of my new favorites that I will be making every year now...YUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Honey adds another layer of flavor to cookies and makes breads and rolls turn out tender.
