Super Easy 4 Ingredient Lace Cookies

I have never had luck with lace cookies and after a lot of searching I found a recipe for lace cookies on a blog called Foodspriration that looked so simple I thought there was no way I could mess these up! I did make a couple changes to the recipe (like using corn syrup instead of honey - because I did not want the honey flavour and using a full 1 tsp of batter per cookie instead of 1/2 tsp) but it did not affect the end product. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!

  1. Put 2 Tbsp of brown sugar, 2 Tbsp of butter and 1 1/2 Tbsp of honey (OR corn syrup) into a sauce pan and melt it.
  2. Once melted, whisk in 2 Tbsp of flour until smooth.
  3. Then drop 1 tsp of the batter onto a parchment lined baking sheet ( about 3 inches apart) and bake for 6 min at 375F or until they are noticably golden brown all over.
  4. The batter spreads and bubbles into beautiful cookies.
  5. Once they have set enough to transfer, you can pick them up with your fingers and move them to a cooling rack to cool until crisp and make sandwiches out of them with buttercream.
  6. Or you can shape them into mini ice cream bowls or cones.

AMAZING cookies!!! I made them with honey & created a sandwich cookie by spreading marshmallow fluff on one lace cookie then topping it with another lace cookie. Also, the cone shape is a great presentation when topped with a ball-shaped glazed Italian Christmas cookie. Don't forget to add colorful sprinkles of your choice when glazing the Italian cookies. Looks like vanilla ice cream. ;-)

Great accent cookies!!! Tasty. Easy. Start out as a quarter size and spread out to about 2.5 inch diameter. There is a very short window to shape them. Too early and they come apart, too late and they are already set. Use your thinnest spatula to remove them. Laying over a rolling pin gives you curls, using a cone gives you a cone and over the backside of a small muffin tin or small glass gives you a little bowl.

I made these a little while ago. I'm having them tonight, and wanted to make them ahead to see if I needed any adjustments. I traveled another road with these. I made them larger and shaped them into bowl shapes. I'm going to put coffee ice cream in them and make a chocolate sauce to top them with. Maybe even a peanut butter chocolate sauce. Cant wait to see my guests faces when they see them! I "accidentally" broke one and had to eat it! Yummy!! Thanks so much Roxanne, for a lovely finish to Christmas dinner, with a little Bailey's cheer! Made for KK's 24 Days of Cookies event at her forum.
