Almond Lace Cookies

I made these lace cookies at the end of Passover and then again a week later cause they were that good. If you are gluten free or it is Passover potato starch is perfect, otherwise flour is fine. They do need time to cool and don't transport so well, but I froze them and brought them to a friend anyway and they were still great, so enjoy.


  • Prep Time : 10 min
  • Cook Time : 9 min
  • Ready Time : 19 min


10 Servings


  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon Morad Amaretto
  • 1/4 cup ground almonds
  • 2 tablespoons flour or potato starch
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips, melted in a ziploc


1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. Combine first 3 ingredients in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at HIGH 30 seconds; stir. Microwave at HIGH 30 more seconds (mixture will bubble); whisk until smooth. Stir in ground almonds, flour or potato starch, and salt. Scrape mixture into center of a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Spread into a 12-inch circle. Bake for 9 minutes, rotating pan after 4 minutes. Lift parchment and cookie onto a wire rack.
3. Prepare the chocolate chips by putting them in a ziploc and melting in the micrwave for 15 seconds.  Snip a hole in the bottom corner and drizzle over the cookie.  Then cut it up in to large pieces and let cool and harden a bit.

  1. These look so delicate. Might like these with some vanilla ice cream.

    Would like to make these but there is an error in the directions. Did you mean “2) Combine first 3 ingredients”?
    And, if I don’t have Amaretto, should I use vanilla extract?

      Barbara, I noticed the same thing. I checked the original recipe in “Cooking Light” Her mistake was that she when she adapted the recipe from “cooking Light”, she did not change the directions. In the original recipe, the third ingredient is butter and the fourth is CANOLA OIL. originally the ground almonds are the fifth ingredient.
