Cookies are never a bad thing. Yet today’s Chocolate Dipped Lace Cookies are a true holiday favorite and will make your friends and family supremely happy this holiday season. That’s a promise!
I get really excited about Christmas cookies.
Especially when I can tell they are homemade!
Bakery cookies are nice to look at, but they never compare with the freshly baked holiday cookies we hold near and dear to our hearts.
One of my personal favorite cookie varieties is lace cookies.
Paper thin and crispy, with a nutty caramel essence. Lace cookies are just as much a candy as they are a cookie.
This year I thought it would be fun to dip my lace cookies in chocolate. I tried several methods from dipping half the cookie in chocolate, to dipping just the edges of the cookies in chocolate. But I discovered that the thick layer of hardened chocolate took away from the delicate texture that makes lace cookies so special.
So the final “dipping” method was to flip the cookies over, spread a thin layer of chocolate over the surface of the bottom, then flip them back over to dry.
The thin layer of chocolate amplifies the nutty caramel quality of the lace cookies, making these the very best batch of lace cookies I’ve ever made!
Seriously. The thin crunchy texture is ridiculously addictive.
If you want to avoid eating the entire batch, you’l need to wrap them up and give them away quickly.
Chocolate Dipped Lace Cookies are my offering for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, an annual campaign that raises money for Cookie for Kids’ Cancer while encouraging bloggers to share holiday cookies online and in the mail. #fbcookieswap
