I'v been looking for a really good lace cookie recipe, I thought this would be the one, I was very dissappointed. It was a waste of time. 2 stars

Such a great recipe. Very cheap to make and very impressive. I served mine with some ice cream and berries and got rave reviews about the cookies. (From one gourmand friend, "Yum! Where did you buy these."--I pretended not to be insulted.) Next time I may use an orange extract and serve them with fruit salad. FYI-whatever extract you use will dominate the flavor. My mom always used almond extract. I may try maple and serve it with vanilla custard...possibilities are endless with this recipe. THANKS. 5 stars

These come out very nice and simple ot make. Wafer thin and very light.
It is different then the usual Xmas Cookie. This recipe makes ~10 12 dollar bill sized cookies, could easily double the recipe. Next batch I am going to substitute something like dried blueberries instead of almond.
5 stars
