Praline Lace Cookies
In medium size pot, put:
1/2 a cup of brown sugar
3/4 cup (175 mL) corn syrup
3/4 cup (175 mL) unsalted butter
Stir constantly over medium heat. Bring to a boil and remove from heat.
1 cup (250 mL) flour
5 Tbsp. (75 g) ground almonds
2 Tbsp. (30 mL) triple sec liquor
Drop by 1/2 tsp. onto greased cookie sheets leaving at least 2 inches around each cookie as the batter spreads very thin, cooks and then forms a lacy design. Bake at 375 F (189 C) for 6 minutes or until slightly hardened. Remove carefully from pan with spatula. This makes approximately 6 dozen cookies with a crispy, candy-like texture combined with a subtle, but festive, almond flavour. This cookie will be the most interesting looking offering on any Christmas sweet tray.
