From the Test Kitchen

* To toast almonds, spread nuts in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until nuts are light golden brown, stirring once or twice.

Layer cookies between waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Store at room temperature for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
