Almond Lace Cookies

Almond Lace Cookies

For the most part these cookies are simple to make and have a big wow factor. The only problem is, you might burn your fingers.  But it is worth it. 

You will need:
  • 1/2c sugar
  • 1/2 c butter
  • 2tbs milk
  • 2/3 cup blanched chopped almonds
  • 2 tbsp flour
(I think you can add more almonds if you want. But do not add more butter or you might just make yummy greasy mush)

Step 1. Mix together the butter and sugar in a heavy bottomed pot and melt over low heat.

Step 2: Take the pot off the heat and add in the rest of the ingredients. Then drop by teaspoon (or whatever) onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. (also a silicon mat would do). The texture will change a little as the mixture cools. Don't worry about it.

Step 3: Bake for a few min (5ish) at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  I take them out when they are light brown on the outside and golden brown inside.

Step 4: Roll them up. You will have to wait a few seconds for them to not be molten. As soon as you can grab an edge without it falling apart, start rolling.

I usually only do three at a time. You only have about 60 seconds before they get too brittle to roll.

Step 5: Put the rolled cookies on a wire rack to cool. If they cool down steeping in their own buttery goodness then they will be soft, not flak. So put them on a rack so that the excess butter can run off.
Finally, after the rolls cool down you can dip one end in melted chocolate.
