Almond Lace Wafers
These delicate almond lace wafer cookies have a wonderfully light crisp texture and can easily be made gluten free. Dip them in chocolate or leave them plain, they’re always a hit!
Today’s recipe for beautiful Almond Lace Wafers was sent in by Donna, who lives in Carmel Indiana. This was her mom’s recipe, and it’s been a beloved Christmas tradition for her since she was a child. I hear it again and again in your emails to me, these cookie recipes that you send in represent treasured holiday memories, and the ritual of making of them year after year is an important part of your lives. Like all of the other cookies I’ve shared, these are incredibly delicious, too, and I have a feeling that after this post there’ll be a lot more people out there who’ll want to incorporate them into their own holidays.
3/4 cup grated un-blanched almonds (use blender nut grater, or food processor – do not
grind into powder but leave a bit crunchy) [Note: I used almond meal.]
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp flour [ or use a gluten free flour mix or oat flour if you like]
1 Tbsp heavy cream or evaporated milk
1 Tbsp whole milk
