Week One was so much fun, I'm back for more! This week, I'm sharing a new (to me) cookie - Lace Cookies Sandwiched with Dark Chocolate. I've never eaten a Lace Cookie before, so this was fun and different. For those of you that have kids - does this happen to you, too? You can be doing absolutely nothing for an hour and the kids are content/fine. The moment you need to do something or are busy, the whole world flips and becomes chaos. This always happens to me. Last Saturday was a prime example. I thought I could avoid that whole situation this time. I was going to start my day ahead of the game and bake the cookies very early before they woke up! I could at least start baking them before my little helper woke up and found me.
As you would guess, my luck continued - instead of needing to tend to the kiddos, the parchment paper was nowhere to be found. I spent so much time looking for it, Caitlin and Ryan both woke up by this point and my plan was out the window. I guess I used it all and forgot? I don't own a Silpat (on my Christmas list this year?). I thought about trying to make them without the parchment for about 1/2 second, but thought better. They would probably be stuck to the pan and ruined, so I waited until I could get out and buy more parchment and made them that night (in peace) once everyone went to bed again.
I doubled the batch and they took no time at all. The cookies will spread a lot as they bake, so be sure to start with small scoops. They come out thin, crispy, buttery (a little too greasy for me) with a butterscotch/brittle flavor. With chocolate sandwiched between them, they are even better. Definitely try these if you're like me and never had them before!
