I found this intriguing recipe over at The Common Room, one of the very few blogs I read daily. I am looking forward to trying it next week, after I visit the grocery store to get the almonds.

Honey-Almond Triangles

1/2 cup butter
1/4 sugar
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons milk
1 cup chopped, slivered, or sliced almonds
1 tsp almond extract
1 3/4 cup sifted flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 egg

In saucepan combine 1/2 cup butter, 1/4 cup sugar, honey, milk, almonds and almond extract. Bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Set aside to cool slightly.

Sift together flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder and salt. With pastry blender, cut in 1/2 cup butter until particles are very fine.

Beat egg with a fork until blended; add to crumb mixture, tossing with a fork to mix. Gather dough and work with hands until mixture holds together, with lightly floured fingertips, press evenly over bottom of lightly greased 15 1/2 X 10 1/2 x 1" Jelly roll pan.

Pour honey-almond topping over dough and spread evenly. Bake in moderate oven (350) 20 to 25 minutes, or until a deep golden color. Place pan on rack at least 10 minutes, or until cool. Cut in 2 1/2 inch squares, then cut each square diagonally to make triangles. Makes 4 dozen.
