Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan combine butter, milk, sugar, and honey. Bring to a full rolling boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat (mixture will appear curdled). Stir in almonds and candied fruits and peels. Stir in flour.
  2. Drop batter by level tablespoons at least 3 inches apart onto a greased and lightly floured cookie sheet (do not use an insulated cookie sheet). Using the back of a spoon, spread the batter into 3-inch circles.
  3. Bake in a 350-degree F oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges are light brown. Cool on a cookie sheet 1 minute. Carefully transfer to parchment or waxed paper. Cool completely.
  4. Repeat with the remaining batter, greasing and flouring the cookie sheet between batches.
  5. In a heavy small saucepan heat semisweet chocolate pieces and the 2 tablespoons shortening over low heat until melted, stirring occasionally. Spread the bottom of each cookie with about 1 teaspoon of the chocolate mixture.
  6. In another small saucepan melt white baking bar and the 2 teaspoons shortening. Drizzle white chocolate onto dark chocolate. To marble, draw the tines of a fork through the white chocolate. Store, covered, in the refrigerator. Makes 24.
