Lacy Brandy Snaps
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
I used wax paper at first for the 'tubes' (as some have called them) and they stuck to it.I sprayed my cookie sheets the next time but found that the butter will create its on slick surface so that you don't need paper.Also, that recipe, in no way makes 4 dozen tubes! It's not even mathematically possible! Mine make about a dozen.The filling was another issue. I consider myself a novice and the explanation was not very clear. I DID end up overbeating the cream in the end! ARGH!So at 9:30pm that night I went out to the grocery store and bought DREAM WHIP. I substituted brandy for the vanilla.Fingers crossed the co-workers enjoy it tomorrow!So to people new to the recipe - it's time consuming!
I have yet to make this recipe, but I will.

With my arthritis, I find it difficult to manoeuver the spoon handle so I made these in a mini-muffin pan and then filled them like tarts.
I'd like to know how to store them.....how long do they keep? Do they get soggy in the refrigerator?
Maiden Faire....Maybe you should just try another recipe. Or you could just substitute apple juice as others have said. Apple juice is always a good substitute for any alcohol in a recipe.

I didn't use any alcohol. For the cookie I used a good vanilla and in the creamy middle I used a 1/4 cup of very strong coffee. For my daughter I did not use coffee...I used chai tea. Beyond great with the chai.
Try apple juice as a sub for the alcohol. Please do not use any alcohol flavoring in the cookie if friends and family have an alcohol problem.
