Ingredients

Set a rack in the middle of an oven, then preheat to 350F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

Prep the baking sheet

1

In a small bowl, combine granulated sugar and ground cinnamon. Mix well, then set aside.

Make the cinnamon sugar

2

In a mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, baking powder, and  Kosher salt, then whisk well.

Combine the dry ingredients

3

In a larger mixing bowl, whisk together large eggs and granulated sugar until the mixture turns a pale yellow. Add neutral oil and almond extract, then mix very well.

Mix the wet ingredients

4

Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients all at once, then use a spatula to gently fold until thoroughly mixed. Add mini chocolate chips and  sliced almonds, then fold again until just combined.

Combine wet and dry ingredients

5

Divide the dough into two even portions, then place on the prepared baking sheet, using your hands to roll each into a log about 14-16 inches long. Sprinkle each with half of the cinnamon sugar, if wanted. Transfer to the preheated oven, then bake.

Bake the logs

6

Use a serrated knife to cut each log into pieces. Return the cookies to the baking sheet on their sides – it’s okay for them to be close together. Bake. Enjoy!
