This easy-as-pie holiday classic is ideal for beginners. The cookies originated in Europe, where each country lent its own culinary twist. For this recipe, just warm up a wet batter, mix in flour and finely chopped almonds, and then drop spoonfuls of batter onto parchment-lined baking sheets. That sugary batter spreads into lovely round cookies in the oven, caramelizing just a bit. Wonderful on their own, lace cookies are also fantastic served in a scoop of ice cream or as an impromptu cookie sandwich filled with peanut butter or Nutella. The total time includes cooling. Ingredients 2 tablespoons unsalted butter ¼ cup granulated sugar ¼ cup light brown sugar ¼ cup light corn syrup Pinch of salt ¼ cup all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled ½ cup finely chopped almonds Directions Heat oven to 375° F. In a medium saucepan, mix butter, sugars, corn syrup, and salt over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally until smooth. Remove from heat and mix in flour and almonds just until incorporated. Drop level teaspoons of the batter onto parchment-lined baking sheets spacing them 4 inches apart. Bake until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Cool on the baking sheets until firm, 8 to 10 minutes, and then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
