Almond-Oat Lace Cookies

I made some cookies as well, both came from Bon Appetit’s bonus publication “Our guide to an easy, stress-free Christmas party” edition.

Almond Oat Cookies

Here is the first one I made, note gray text is quoted from BA.


  • 1/2 cup whole natural unsalted almonds with skins
  • 2 tablespoons old-fashioned oats
  • 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter
  • 6 tablespoons superfine sugar
  • 2 tablespoons (packed) light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted


  • Arrange racks in lower and upper thirds of oven; preheat to 350°. Line 2 rimless baking sheets with parchment paper. Pulse almonds and oats in a food processor until coarase meal forms. Set aside.
  • Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add both sugars and honey; whisk until blended and sugar dissolves, 1–2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add nut mixture, flour, and salt; stir until well blended.
  • Spoon batter by 2-teaspoon portions onto baking sheets, spacing 2 1/2″ apart. Using your fingertips, pat cookies down to 1/4″-high rounds; push in any jagged edges to form smooth circles. Bake, rotating sheets after 6 minutes, until dark golden brown and cookies spread out into a thin layer, 10-–12 minutes. Slide cookies on parchment onto a wire rack and let cool.
  • Using a pastry brush, brush half of each cookie with melted chocolate. Let stand until the chocolate is set, about 2 hours. DO AHEAD: Can be made 2 days ahead. Store airtight in between sheets of parchment or waxed paper.

They claimed that it would make 24 cookies but I got about half that.  Also, they where really thin and fragile, next time I will bulk them up very slightly with a little extra almonds (will try 1/4 cup extra almonds) and maybe add a wee bit more flour and oats.  I also thought that a little cinnamon and nutmeg might be good addition but I will have to experiment a little.
I brushed then drizzled the chocolate over the cookies.
Quick how to melt chocolate:
Add water to a pan, bring to boil.  Place chocolate in a non-reactive metal bowl and put over boiling water forming a double boiler.  Chacolate will melt without burning!

over all they were a hit and will be in my cookie rotation for sure!
