Lalo’s Famous Cookies

Gwyneth has shared another recipe with us: Lalo’s Famous Cookies (which happen to be vegan)! The first one to post a picture (with you in it) on Jessica’s facebook page will receive a signed copy of Gwyneth’s new cookbook My Father’s Daughter.

Prep time: 25 minutes
Total time: 45 minutes
Yield: about 50 cookies

4 cups barley flour
3 cups raw whole almonds crushed in a food processor (about ten 2-second pulses)
1 teaspoon fine salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup canola oil
1 cup real Vermont maple syrup
Your favorite jam (blueberry, raspberry, and apricot are all very nice)

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Combine all the ingredients except for the jam together in a large bowl with a wooden spoon. Form into tablespoonful balls and space them evenly on cookie sheets. Using your index finger, make an indent in each cookie. Fill each indent with a small spoonful of jam. Bake until the cookies are evenly browned, about 20 minutes. Let cool before eating.

Tools needed:
Medium bowl, measuring cups, measuring spoons, wooden spoon, cookie sheets, small spoon, food processor
