My Lace Sandwich Cookies, also known as Laceys, are thin and delicate, but pack so much flavor between the chocolate and almonds that you won't stop eating them!

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 18 cookies
Author: Gemma Stafford
  • 1 ½ cups (7½oz/213g) almonds
  • ½ cup (4oz/115g) butter
  • ¾ cup (4½oz/128g) dark brown sugar
  • ¼ cup (2½oz/71g) honey
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (6oz/170g) finely chopped bittersweet chocolate.
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Place the almonds in a food processor and grind to the texture of breadcrumbs (not as fine as flour).

  3. In a small saucepan, heat the butter, brown sugar, and honey until the butter and sugar are melted.

  4. Transfer the butter mixture to a small mixing bowl and stir in the flour, vanilla extract, and almonds.

  5. Place rounded teaspoonfuls 3 inches (7½cm) apart on one of the prepared baking sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes, until golden brown but not too dark (or they will taste burnt).

  6. Remove the pan from the oven and immediately lift the parchment paper with the cookies onto a counter to let cool.

  7. While the cookies are cooling, get another batch of cookies into the oven.

  8. After a few minutes, the cookies will have cooled and hardened. You can then lift them off the paper and transfer them to a wire rack.

  9. Once all the cookies are baked and cooled, melt the chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat.

  10. Turn half of the cookies over and brush a thin layer of chocolate on them. Sandwich the cookies with another lace cookie and let rest until the chocolate is set.

  11. Store lace cookies between layers of parchment in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
