Laced cookies are one of my favorites. The ingredients list is short, so you probably have everything you need in your kitchen already. I combined the ingredients and did a test bake. Unfortunately, I burned the first batch. It took a few more bakes until I got my oven temperature right and the time to bake. They take only 6 minutes to cook and I had to keep a real close eye on them. I recommend you do the same. Every oven is different and my times and temperature could be different to your oven. But trust me, once you get them just right they are delicious!

  • 1 Cup sifted flour
  • 1/2 Cup raw almonds peeled and shopped
  • Pinch salt

  • Let them cool down on the baking sheet.

*each oven is different, the bake temperature varies between 400-430 Farhenheit. Suggest you start first with one cookie to see if you get the desirable end result. 
*Pay close attention around minute 6, because the time between golden brown and black is super close.
