Lace Cookies

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by mandabears

I work at a retirement community and during the holiday season, the hallways smell delicious; especially outside Mrs. B's apartment. This is an old family recipe and she does not share it with a lot of people. I am really flattered that she shared it with me. This a really easy lace cookie recipe. Beware! this is a fragile cookie.

I have been making these cookies for several years and found a couple of hints that make these a lot easier to estimate the cooking time and to remove from the foil. I spray the foil very lightly with a spritz of Pam. I use insulated baking sheets and only put nine cookies to a regular size baking sheet so that the center row bakes evenly with the outside rows. I found that they are usually perfect in eight to nine minutes (I use an electric oven). I remove the full sheet of foil with the cookies on it from the baking sheet and slide it on to cooling racks to fully cool before peeling the cookies off with a thin spatula. These are also great crumbled over a bowl of vanilla ice cream.
