It has been FOREVER since I’ve cooked up some lace cookies! But thanks to Better Homes and Gardens inspiration to create a vintage recipe, perfect for a party, these are what came to mind. I remember making these as a little girl with my mom and grandma, and loving every minute of it! Vintage recipes are so much fun to pull out of the recipe file, don’t you think?! They were just as good as I remember. Being the chocolate fanatic that I am, I of course how to drizzle, dip and sandwich these cookies with chocolate. But you are also more than welcome to eat them without the chocolate, they still are delicious!

- 1 cup almond slivers
- 4 tbsp butter
- 2 tbsp cream
- 2 tbsp corn syrup
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ tsp vanilla
- 2 tbsp flour
- ½ cup chocolate chips - melted (optional)
- Place almond slivers in a food processor until finely ground.
- In a medium saucepan, heat together the butter, cream, corn syrup, sugar and vanilla. Let boil for 1-2 minutes.
- Mix in the ground almonds and flour into the hot sugar mixture. Set aside until cool enough to handle, about 20 minutes.
- Heat oven to 350. Roll about 1 tsp of dough (this will not be like a normal cookie dough texture) into a ball and place 3 inches apart on a lined cookie sheet. (Use less dough for smaller cookies).
- Bake for 6-8 minutes until the cookies are just turning brown.
- Once the cookies have cooled, feel free to dip, drizzle and sandwich the cookies with the melted chocolate.
