How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 375F. Grease 2 baking sheets, or spray them with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Boil the chopped almonds for 2 min. in just enough water to cover them. Drain and use a food processor to chop finely.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat. Remove from the heat and stir in the flour, sugar, heavy cream, vanilla extract and chopped almonds.
  • Drop teaspoonfuls 2 1/2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets.
  • Bake until golden rims form, about 5 min.
  • Meanwhile, melt the chocolate chips with 1 tbsp. shortening in a microwave, about 1 min (use a microwave-safe bowl). Stir to make a smooth chocolate sauce.
  • Drizzle the chocolate sauce over the lace cookies.
  • Remove the cookies with a spatula onto a lg. plate and allow to cool until the chocolate sauce has hardened.
