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!
- 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.
- Once melted, whisk in 2 Tbsp of flour until smooth.
- 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.
- The batter spreads and bubbles into beautiful cookies.
- 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.
- 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.
