Lace Almond Cookies


These gorgeous see-through lacy almond cookies caught my eye when I was surfing the internet for something light, wafer sort of cookie that can go down well with my homemade ice cream.   These wafers are studded with almonds and oats though I find them to be a wee bit buttery.  You only need a teaspoon of the batter per cookie as they do spread real flat during baking, hence, you'll need to allow more spreading room.


Pretty, delicate and highly addictive!

    Ingredients

    2. Melt the butter on low heat, add brown sugar, golden syrup, milk and salt, blend well.  
    3. Stir in the oats, flour and vanilla.
    4. Fold in the almonds.
    5. Drop 1 teaspoonful of batter onto the baking sheet, leave about 3 inches apart.  Bake for 7 to 8 mins. till golden brown and darker at the edges.
    6. Transfer to cool on a cooling rack, let cookies sit and firm up.
    7. Store in air-tight container in between parchment paper.
    8. Yield :  64 pieces.
    Note
    1. Do not underbake the cookies otherwise they'll be soft and not crispy.
    2. If they do turn soft later, reheat.

    1. Yes, I was infatuated with the lacy look of these cookies. But they don't stay crispy for long, need to reheat.

    1. They're quite easy to make but make sure you leave them plenty of spread room while baking, they can really spread out flat.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.
