Almond Lace Wafers
These delicate almond lace wafer cookies are gluten free and have a wonderfully light crisp texture. Dip them in chocolate or leave them plain, they're always a hit!
grated un-blanched almonds (use blender
nut grater, or food processor - do not
grind into powder
but leave a bit crunchy) [Sue's note: I used almond meal.]
flour [ or use a gluten free flour mix
or oat flour if you like]
heavy cream or evaporated milk
Set oven to 350F
Grease and flour 2 cookie sheets.
Put the ground almonds or almond meal into a saucepan.
Mix in all remaining ingredients.
Cook over low heat until butter melts, stirring constantly. Batter is very thin.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet, only 5-6 at a time as batter will spread.
Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until a light caramel color, with centers still bubbly. Watch very carefully so as not to overbrown.
Let cool for 1 minute, then immediately transfer, UPSIDE DOWN, to waxed paper.
Working quickly, immediately roll each cookie quickly around the handle of a wooden spoon, forming a loose cylinder. If cookies start to harden, return to oven for 1 minute to soften.
Allow to cool.
These cookies are quick cooking but since you need to do them in batches, the whole process will take about an hour.
