Brandy Snaps

Recipe by AshK5246

These are lacy, British tea-time favorites. Fill the cookies just before serving so that they remain crisp.

These are lovely, delicate cookies! I had a little trouble rolling them and making them look nice, but I think that has more to do with me than the recipe! I plan to try these again and see if I can't make them pretty for my holiday trays! What a treat!!! Thank you for posting these, Ashk!! **Went to Market 2007**

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Heat butter, corn syrup and brown sugar to boiling in saucepan, stirring frequently; remove from heat. Stir in 2 teaspoons brandy. Mix flour and ginger; gradually stir into syrup mixture. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls about 5 inches apart onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake until cookies spread into 3- or 4-inch rounds and are golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes.
  3. Cool cookies 1 to 3 minutes before removing from cookie sheets. Working quickly, roll each cookie around greased handle of wooden spoon; slip from spoon and place on wire racks. If cookies become too crisp to roll, return to oven to soften about 1 minute.
  4. Beat whipping cream and confectioners sugar in chilled bowl until stiff; fold in 1 tablespoon brandy. Using pastry tube with plain or star tip, pipe whipped cream into each end of cookies.
