My Mother used to make these every year during the Christmas Season. You can actually put a hook in them and decorate your tree with these cookies. They're more like a yummy coconut candy than a cookie to me.

10 Min


  • 1 c
    all-purpose flour (sifted)
  • 1 c
    flaked coconut
  • 1 stick
    margarine or butter
  • 1/2 c
    light brown sugar
  • 1/2 c
    light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp

How to Make Karo Lace Cookies


  1. In a separate bowl, mix together flour and coconut.
  2. In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, melt margarine. Add brown sugar and Karo syrup, and stir until it comes to a low boil and all ingredients have blended together.
  3. Remove saucepan from heat and gradually stir in flour/coconut mixture. Then add the vanilla.
  4. Line your cookie sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper. Drop cookie mixture, by scant teaspoonfuls, about three inches apart on the foil, or paper, lining your pan.
  5. Bake in a 350 degree oven for @ 10-12". (I like for mine to get lightly browned around the edges, which takes a couple of minutes longer.)
  6. Remove from oven, and place on rack to cool. These take several minutes - about 5", or so - to cool enough to touch. Peel off of the foil or paper & bake more!
  7. Warning: These ARE addictive, lol!
