Total Time



1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1/4 cup sugar

3 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Heavy Whipping Cream

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2/3 cup finely chopped dried tropical fruit

1/3 cup chopped slivered almonds


1 cup white baking chips

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 325°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine butter, sugar, honey and whipping cream in 1 1/2-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 3-5 minutes or until butter is melted and mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; stir in flour using whisk. Continue cooking 3-4 minutes or until mixture is smooth and thickens. Remove from heat; stir in fruit and almonds. Let stand 10-15 minutes or until cool enough to handle.

  3. STEP 3

    Drop mixture by tablespoonfuls, 3 inches apart, onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges of cookies are deep golden brown. Let stand on cookie sheets 1 minute. Slide parchment paper with cookies onto cooling rack; cool 5 minutes. Peel cookies from parchment paper to release. Place onto clean parchment or waxed paper.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine white baking chips and oil in bowl. Microwave, stirring every 15 seconds, 60-90 seconds or until melted and smooth. Drizzle about 1 teaspoon onto each cookie. Let stand 30 minutes or until set.

Tip #1

- Parchment paper is essential to the success of this recipe as the crisp cookies peel right off it. It can be found near other paper and foil products at the supermarket.

Tip #2

- Use 2 spoons to drop soft dough mixture onto parchment-lined cookie sheets.
