Lace Cookies are thin, crisp, delicate and buttery cookies with a deliciously sweet taste and a toffee-like flavour. They are made with just a few ingredients and the batter comes together in just minutes. As they bake, they spread out to form a lace pattern, hence the name. Enjoy them as they are or sandwich two cookies with a layer of chocolate. If you prefer a less brittle consistency, use up to 35 grams flour.

  • 110 g Unsalted butter
  • 100 g Raw sugar
  • 12 g Spelt pastry flour
  • 80 g Hazelnut meal
  • A large pinch of sea salt
  • 30 ml Heavy cream
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp Finely grated orange zest
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Line 2-3 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Melt butter and raw sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring frequently, until the sugar dissolves and butter melts. Stir in spelt flour, ground hazelnut, salt and cream until incorporated and slightly thickened.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla extract and orange zest. Drop the batter by the teaspoon onto the baking sheet, leaving about 2-3 inches of space between each one.
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges of the cookies start to turn dark golden brown, rotating the baking sheets halfway through. Remove from the oven and as soon as they are firm, use a wide spatula to transfer them to the rack to cool completely.

I love lace cookies but have never tried making them at home. They look so beautiful and delicious, Angie! Great clicks too :)

Jeff the Chef 29/12/19 17:41

Beautiful! And thanks for the tip about the flour, because I love it when lace cookies are just a little bit chewy. Also, thanks about the chocolate tip! I would definitely do that.
