Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange 2018

I am joining a few blogging friends for a Virtual Christmas Cookie Exchange. Since we don't live near each other to exchange cookies, we will exchange posts instead. We will be sharing and promoting each other's cookie recipes this month. Each post will be added to the link up below. Starting Dec. 2nd other bloggers can add their own cookie recipes to the link-up. Please come back and add your posts to help everyone make a wonderful holiday season of baking!

Lace Cookies

These cookies speak Christmas to me. I remember every year, my mom would buy a variety of cookies from the bakery. There would be a white box in our dining room and thankfully, they weren't being saved for a special occasion. I remember the Lace Cookies being one of my favorites. Little did I know they were so easy to make. 

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup light corn syrup
  • pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup finely chopped almonds
  • ½ semi-sweet chocolate bar (Bakers)
  • cream - 2.5Tbsp or so

Directions:

Start by heating the to oven to 375° F.

 


In a medium saucepan, heat the butter, sugars, corn syrup, and salt over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally.

 


Wait until smooth. I let mine come to a slight boil.
 

 


Remove from heat and mix in the flour and almonds just until incorporated.

 


I spray my foil lightly with cooking spray.
Then drop about half a teaspoon of the batter onto foil covered baking sheets, spacing them 4 inches apart. Bake until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes
You may find that you need to use less time as the batches progress. I started at 6 minutes and finished around 5 minutes a batch.

 


They really flatten out and have a mind of their own for the shape.
I remove the foil with the cookies and set it aside to cool.
I then use another sheet of foil and being the process again until the mixture is gone.

 


In a microwave safe bowl place half the Bakers chocolate and a tablespoon of cream.
Microwave for 15 seconds. Stir. (picture above - not much melting yet)
Back to the Microwave for another 15 seconds, add another tablespoon of cream. Mix well.
Microwave again for another 10 seconds, add 1/2 tablespoon of cream and mix throughly.

Place into a plastic sandwich bag and cut a very small piece of the corner so you can drizzle the chocolate onto the cookies.

 


They are so pretty and delecate looking. Everyone will think they were difficult to make.

This is so nice! I even remember my grandma doing a cookie exchange at our church. The night she delivered
Cookies we went with her because that meant we got all kinds of different cookies. People just don’t live like that anymore.

I seem to recall making something similar from a Gourmet magazine cookbook waaaaay back in the 80s. I agree they were easy enough to make, but their recipe involved draping the cookies over the handle of a wooden spoon. Kinda fun, but fiddly. They taste just as good flat, hahaha.

These cookies sound delicious and look pretty, too. I love the drizzle on top.
