1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup almonds chopped

1 cup flour
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar packed

Preheat oven to 375°.

In a small saucepan over medium heat, stir 1/4 cup butter or margarine, 1/4 cup sugar and honey until mixture boils. Boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in almonds and almond extract. Set aside to cool.

In a large mixer bowl at low speed, beat flour, 2/3 cup sugar, brown sugar, 2/3 cup butter or margarine, egg, water, vanilla, baking powder, cardamom and salt until well blended, scraping bowl and beaters as needed. Beat in oats until well blended. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls, using about 1/2 tablespoon dough at a time, 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
