Reviews for Buttery Lace Cookies
"yummy....best lace cookie recipe I've made so far."
"This recipe caught my eye because it is quick and easy to assemble and makes a large quantity. I did have to tinker with it a bit, however. To me, the first batch came out too sweet and too oily. I also felt the almond flavoring overpowered the taste. (That's just my taste. You might like it just fine the way it is.) I started over using 1 cup of sugar, 1 1/2 sticks of butter and substituting an additional 1/2 tsp of lemon flavoring for the almond. I also baked them on parchment paper-lined baking sheets so there was no need to oil the surface. The second batch came out really well - light, crispy, lemony and not too sweet. I would definitely make this recipe again."
