"I originally clipped this recipe from an old Good Housekeeping magazine and have been eyeing it for quite some time. I have been wanting to make it, as it sounds wonderful and that it will result in a delicate delicious cookie. I've even had all my ingredients ready last Christmas, and just plain ran out of time. Placing it here for safe keeping so I can access it quickly."

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 - Fahrenheit.

Step 2

In 2-quart saucepan, combine ground almonds, butter, sugar, flour and cream.

Step 3

Heat over low flame until butter melts.

Step 4

Keep mixture warm over very low flame.

Step 5

Drop batter by rounded teaspoons, about 3-inches apart on cookie sheet.

Step 6

(Do not place more than 6 on a cookie sheet, after they bake, they quickly have to be shaped before hardening) Bake cookies 5-7 minutes until edges are lightly brown and centers are just golden.

Step 7

Remove from oven, and let cookies stand on cookie sheet 30-60 seconds, until edges set.

Step 8

With metal spatula, quickly flip cookies over so the"lacy" side will show after being rolled.

Step 9

Working quickly, roll each cookie into a cylinder around the handle of a wooden spoon.

Step 10

If cookies become to hard to roll, return them briefly to often to soften.

Step 11

As each cookie is shaped, remove from spoon handle; cool on wire rack.

Step 12

Repeat until batter is used.

Step 13

Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

Delicious little lacy cookies...they are very fragile...I used parchment paper to line my small cookie sheet...next time I might use a large one and make bigger cookies...the recipes says teaspoons (plural)...but I used just one rounded teaspoon per cookies...you need to have patience and not try and flip the cookie too soon...or you will get a big glob of yummy cookie...I let mine sit for 1 minute and flipped them...also make sure you have a wooden spoon with a round handle...out of my 15 wooden kitchen tools I had only one...whew...that was close...made for "Pick Me" tag game...
