Lace Cookies Recipe

Lace Cookies Recipe

One chef described lace cookies as like a candied sugar brown potato chip. Once you start eating them, you can't stop with one. In fact, 4 or five is the norm.

Servings 24 cookies


  • 2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • ¼ cup of granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup of light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup of light corn syrup
  • ¼ cup of all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup of chopped blanched almonds
  • a pinch of sea salt


  • Preheat your oven to around 375F.
  • Add the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, corn syrup, and salt in a saucepan and heat over medium-low heat until the butter melts. Then remove the pan from the heat.
  • Next add the flour and the almonds. The result will be a sticky dough.
  • Scoop about a level teaspoon full of dough on parchment paper atop a baking sheet.
    As the cookies spread out a lot, allow at least 5 inches from one cookie to the next.
    Most people will try a trial of maybe 3 cookies on a sheet in order to find out how much their lace cookies will spread and how long to cook them.
    Generally, 5 minutes in the oven is enough but you want to watch your lace cookies carefully, particularly the first batch. Cook them too long and they will have an unreasonable burnt taste. However, if you do not cook them long enough, they will not be near crispy enough, and being crispy is the name of the game.
  • Cool for at least 10 or 15 minutes if you want your lace cookies to be crisp and ready to eat.
  • If your first batch turns out less than ideal, not to worry. Try turning down the oven to 350F, and then bake your cookies a little longer.
    Although the cookies are quite edible as they are, most people love to experiment by making sandwiches out of lace cookies.
    For interior ingredients, if you choose to make lace cookies, some people like chocolate, or marshmallow, Nutella, Carmel, or even peanut butter.
    Really, there is no end to the number of ingredients that you can add to these delicious, sugary cookies. And you and even mix them up with less ordinary ingredients like tuna or salmon.
