Almond Lace Cookie Cups

words by Celeste Leal • images by Frankie Leal

We all know how delicious an Almond lace cookie is. How much better would it be with a scoop of sorbet inside? That’s right, I said inside! Chef Bill Hassett of Masterpiece Catering is showing you how to make your own Almond Lace Cookie Cup. Traditionally the cookie is flat like any normal cookie, I have also seen them rolled up like a straw. In this recipe they will be shaped into cups so you can put your favorite sorbet inside. It’s the perfect way to quench that late night craving or serve as a delicate dessert to your family and friends. They aren’t hard to make, but they are very addicting, especially when you add the sorbet. Enjoy!

1/2 C, plus 2Tblsp finely chopped almonds
1/4 C All Purpose Flour
2 oz (1/2 stick) Butter, softened
1/4 C packed Brown Sugar
1/4 C light Corn Syrup
Pre Heat Oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl, combine almonds and flour and set aside.

Then combine butter, sugar, and corn syrup in a small sauce pan. Bring just to a boil and remove from heat. Stir in dry ingredients. Let cool, stirring occasionally until thickened and cooled enough to handle.

With moistened hands roll into 1 “ balls. Place onto ungreased cookie sheet about 5” apart. Bake about 12 min. or until active bubbling subsides. Remove from oven, cool briefly until cookies can be removed from sheet without tearing. Form over small cups or bowls. If cookies become too firm to mold return to oven for about 1 min. and continue shaping. They can be filled with your choice of sorbet, ice cream or mousse. Be imaginative and delight in your creation.
