Swedish Oatmeal Cookies

**not to discourage, but this recipe is kind of hard, and the cookies tend to come out really super flat... I've yet to get it like my grandma did.**

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar (packed)
1 tsp soda
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups oats
1 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup shortening
2 eggs

Heat oven to 350, in larg bowl, combine all above in this order: shortening, both sugars, (cream well), then eggs, then rest. (stir in oats w/ spoon.)

2/3 cups sugar
3 tbs light corn syrup
1/4 tsp almond extract
1/2 cup margerine
2/3 cups almonds (chopped)

In small pan, combine sugar, margerine and corn syrup. Boil; remove, stir in almonds and extract. Let cool slightly. Drop dough in rounded tsp's on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8 min, then w/ tsp make indent on top of cookies (gently!) spoon 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of topping onto cookie. Bake 6-8 minutes longer. Cool slightly before removing them from cookie sheet.
