Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cup flour 355 grams
  • 2 tablespoons sugar 28 grams
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder 15 grams
  • ¼ teaspoon salt 2 grams
  • cup canola oil 73 grams
  • ¾ cup Silk Almond milk 181 grams
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract 3 grams
  • cup almonds toasted and chopped in food processor 55 grams
  • 1 cup dried cherries 172 grams

Almond milk glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • In a large bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add the canola oil. Do not overwork the dough.
  • In a medium bowl combine eggs, almond milk, almond extract.
  • Add egg mixture to flour mixture. Stir using a fork until just moistened. Add the almonds and dried cherries and continue to stir until just moistened.
  • Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead dough for 10 - 15 strokes until it is nearly smooth.
  • Divide dough in half. Roll each portion into a 6" square. Cut each square into four squares. We used a cutter. Then cut each square into half diagonally to create triangles of dough.
  • Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush the triangles with additional milk. Place these in the freezer uncovered for about 30 minutes.
  • Remove from freezer and bake for 12 - 15 minutes until golden. Cool slightly and drizzle with glaze.

Almond Milk Glaze

  • In a small bowl stir together the powdered sugar, almond milk. Stir in additional almond milk if needed to reach a drizzling consistency.
