Lace cookies should be a part of every cookie buffet, they add the perfect option for the “I’ll have a small one” line of thinking. These are crisp, rich and light all at the same time, the perfect answer to that sweet tooth.
These scrumptious cookies came from Southern Living. Truly cannot go wrong!
¾ cup powdered sugar
½ cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon wild flower honey
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
½ cup finely chopped hazelnuts
6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons whole wheat flour
1. Preheat oven to 325°. Beat first 5 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer 4 to 5 minutes or until creamy. Add hazelnuts and next 2 ingredients; beat just until blended. Drop by level teaspoonfuls 3 inches apart onto 2 parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
2. Bake at 325° for 12 to 14 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool on baking sheets 5 minutes; transfer to wire racks, and cool.
Makes about 2 dozen.
These are a perfect hostess gift, and last up to a week. Unless the elves in the house get to them first!!
