Orange – Almond Lace Cookies

Bon Appetit – December 1999

Makes about 24

  • ¾ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 ½ cup finely chopped almonds
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 T all purpose flour
  • 2 t grated orange peel
  • ½ t salt
  • 1 large egg, beaten to blend

Preheat oven to 325.  Line large baking sheet with parchment paper.  Stir ¾ cup butter in heavy medium saucepan over medium-low heat until melted.  Remove from heat.  Stir in nuts, sugar, flour, orange peel and salt; then stir in egg.  Drop some batter by generous tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet, spacing 3 inches apart (cookies will spread).

Bake cookies until lacy and golden brown, about 15 minutes.  Gently slide parchment paper with cookies onto rack; cool completely.  Transfer cookies to paper towels.  Repeat with remaining batter, lining cooled baking sheet with clean parchment for each batch.
