Food Recipes Lace Cookies 3.0 (191) 21 Reviews Just like the name indicates, lace cookies are delicate, and seemingly intricate, creations. Thing is, they’re actually a breeze to make, so don’t let that thin texture and those perfectly bubbled tops fool you. After heating a wet batter and mixing in flour and finely chopped almonds, you’ll drop spoonfuls of the batter onto parchment-lined baking sheets and throw the pans in the oven. The sugary batter spreads out into lovely round cookies and caramelizes just a bit. Wonderful on their own, lace cookies are also fantastic served in a scoop of ice cream, or even as an impromptu cookie sandwich, with peanut butter or Nutella.
