I found my recipe for these. I had forgotten about them. They are delish and have a nutty, buttery flavor.

I call them lace cookies as they are thin and delicate and pretty!

Keep a watchful eye on oven once they start caramalizing!

Enjoy these!

  4. Tip or Option: Before cookies thoroughly cool, you may "curl" them around some thin or thick object.

    (You may remember these cookies as I have seen them curled in bakeries almost like cheese straws - so you can get creative but has to be done before they cool or harden))
