ALMOND LACE COOKIES
½ cup sugar
½ cup butter
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour4
2 tablespoons milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour large cookie sheet. Into a large skillet, measure all ingredients except confectioners’ sugar. Cook over low heat, stirring, until butter is melted and mixture is blended. Keeping mixture warm over very low heat, drop 4 heaping teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto cookie sheet. Bake 5 minutes or until golden.
Remove cookie sheet from oven and, with pancake turner, quickly remove cookies, one by one, and roll around handle of a wooden spoon, or drape over a rolling pin. (If cookies get too hard to roll, reheat in oven a minute to soften.) Cool. Repeat until all batter is used, greasing and flouring cookie sheet each time.
Lightly dust cookies with confectioners’ sugar. Makes about 2 1/2/ dozen cookies.
NOTE: Mixture will be hard to handle on humid days.
