Ingredients

Yield : 50

  • 4 cups barley flour
  • 3 cups almonds (raw whole, crushed in a food processor, about ten 2-second pulses)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • jam (I really liked raspberry but Paltrow also recommends apricot or blueberry)

Directions to make Lalo’s Famous Cookies (or In Defense of Paltrow)

Combine all of the ingredients, except the jam, in a large bowl with a wooden spoon. Form into rounded tablespoon-sized balls and space them evenly on baking sheets lined with parchment. Use your index finger or the end of a wooden spoon to make an indentation and fill each cookie with a small amount of jam. Bake until cookies are evenly browned, about 20 minutes.
