  1. Finely chop the almonds, or pulse them in a food processor.
  2. In a saucepan, combine the heavy cream and brown sugar over medium high heat.
  3. Add the butter and honey into the saucepan and let it come to a rolling boil for about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add the chopped almonds and let it come to a boil once more for 3-4 minutes. Keep the batter over medium heat until it thickens.
  5. Remove the saucepan from heat and add the flour and vanilla extract.
  6. Scoop out 1 tablespoon sized mounds of the batter onto a silicone mat or parchment paper. Using your hand, slightly flatten out a each mound. I do this to ensure a thin even layered cookie.
  7. Bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 7-8 minutes or until the edges of the cookies become slightly brown. If you want a more crisp cookie, bake for 1-2 minutes more.
  8. Once the cookies have cooled, melt the white chocolate and drizzle a desired amount over each cookie.
