  • Roll tablespoons of dough into 1-inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Press the tip of your index finger in the center of each cookie to make an indentation.
  • Bake the cookies, in batches, until set and barely golden on the bottom, 13 to 15 minutes.
  • Transfer to a wire rack; let cool for 30 minutes.
  • Combine the remaining 1/4 cup honey and 1 tablespoon butter in a small bowl until creamy. Use about 1/4 teaspoon to fill each cookie and top with 2 sliced almonds, if desired.
