Variation: Rolled Almond Lace Cookies or Florentine's
This recipe is not a complicated one, it takes only minutes to put together, a short stay in the refrigerator to chill, and a close eye in the oven. The result is a delicate, crunchy, almost candy-like cookie that is paper thin, yet full of flavor. If you work quickly, the cookie can be carefully removed from the hot sheet pan and formed over a small bowl or cup to shape a cookie dessert bowl...just like the pros!! I always make this cookie at the Holidays, it is quick and simple, yet elegant at the same time. Try it and you just might add it to your list of "must haves"!
See also my Oatmeal Lace Cookies, where I use light corn syrup and light brown sugar with the almonds for a different flavor, but the result is the same.
