I made this as written except for using a whole stick of unsalted butter and baking for 7 minutes at 350 degrees in a preheated oven. They turned out beautifully! Thanks for sharing!

Love these cookies! I'm so glad I can use this recipe, as most lace cookies call for just a tiny amount of heavy cream (which I usually don't have on hand). I made this without nuts. These are so buttery and crisp and delicious. This is a keeper, thank you so much!
