If you want to have a taste of ‘cookie heaven’ these are the cookies that will take you there. These cookies are named lace because of the lace like holes that form in them while being baked. They are delicate and they melt right in your mouth so it doesn’t really leave any mess which is good if you’re on an outing. Whether it may be for your kids’ lunch or for your spouse as a quick snack on a hectic work day, either way Lace Cookies are excellent.
- 20 minutes
- 15 minutes
- Oven racks
- Baking sheets
- Parchment paper or Non-stick liners (whichever you have access to)
- Saucepan (medium sized)
- Cooling rack
- Food processor
- 1/3 cup of all purpose flour
- ¼ cup of light brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons of light corn syrup
- 5 tablespoons of unsalted butter
- 2 ounces of almond
- 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
- A pinch of salt
- Place two oven racks into the middle and upper section of your oven and preheat at 350F.
- Use parchment paper or non stick liners and line the baking sheet.
- Grind out all the almonds and then measure out ½ cup.
- Put the butter, corn syrup, brown and granulated sugar into the saucepan and put it on a low flame. Stir the ingredients together until the sugar dissolves.
- Increase the flame to a medium high and continue to stir until the mixture starts to boil, then remove the pan from the heat.
- Gradually add flour and salt into the mixture while stirring until they combined. Add the vanilla extract and almonds to the mixture.
- Use the spoon to drop the batter unto the baking sheets to form the cookies. Then place the baking sheet into the oven for about 8 – 10 minutes. After the first 5 minutes of baking, switch around the baking sheets from top to bottom so that they can bake evenly.
- When the cookies are done allow them to cool for about 5 minutes. Once the cookies are cool enough use a spatula to put the cookies onto the cooking racks to complete the cooling process. If this is not done the cookies might flatten more.
