Macadamia Lace Cookie



This cookie is called lace cookie because as it bakes, it bubbles and creates little holes that ends up looking like a lace pattern - very adorable!
I decided to make this recipe for Christmas because it works as a really good gift since it doesn't spoil fast and it maintains most of its quality and crunchiness for up to 3 weeks. With creativity you could even mold the warm cookie into the shape of your preference, even like a cute little basket for fruits- wow how cheesy would that be? ;)


The characteristics of the lace cookies are crunchiness and nuttiness, super delicate and thin with nuts that enriches the flavor, it reminds a baked praline like the one I made to garnish the chocolate soufflé but much more consistent as it contains a little bit of flour. The chocolate is totally optional but since the cookie itself is not very sweet I think that the chocolate is almost essential to the recipe plus it looks quite nice with one side all zig-zaged in chococolate (or maybe in the middle if you made sandwiches)



I'm in Brazil right now to spend the holidays with my family and even though I couldn't make a super special Christmas show before I left NY I hope this recipe comes in a good time for all of you.

This Christmas give love, not gift - maybe some lace cookies as well!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup light brown sugar (you can use dark but i find it very hard to identify when it's ready in the oven when using dark brown sugar)
2 tbsp unsalted butter- room temperature
2 tbsp heavy cream
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup flour
1/2 cup macadamia nut
1 tsp vanilla extract
200g chocolate- 60% cacao (or the chocolate of your preference)

    1. É o creme de leite fresco que fica nas geladeiras dos mercados. Pode substituir por leite integral que dá certo tambem.

    2. There is nothing really that creates the whipping effect of the heavy cream. I'm pretty sure you can find it, just look for whipping cream, Chantilly, or something like that. Sometimes the name is different but the product is the same ;)

    3. You can also use buttermilk or one part soy milk another part coconut milk and simmer that down =D

  8. I am going to make these. They have these at my market, but they contain soy lecithin which I cannot have. Now I can make my own.

    I enjoyed your puff pastry tutorial. I appreciated when you showed what happens when the dough gets too warm. It is nice to know what to do, but sometimes it is even better to know what not to do. Good job.

    Did you attend culinary school?
