These cookies should be very brittle. Test one or two to get the correct baking time before baking the entire batch.

  • In saucepan over medium heat, combine the corn syrup, brown sugar, and butter. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in the vanilla and flour mixture. Stir until well blended. Mixture will turn opaque. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets about 3 inches apart.

Super thin and crunchy almost toffee-like. I used dark corn syrup just because it's all i had. I also added 1/4teaspoon Cardamom just for the heck of it. Cinnamon nutmeg cloves anything like that would also be yummy. They're probably great without any additions though. They spread ALOT! I dropped 1/2 teaspoons full and only put 6 cookies per baking sheet. I baked them on parchment paper for 8-9 minutes took the parchment paper off the cookie sheet and onto my countertop to cool them quickly. Read More

Lacy and crunchy especially on the outside edges. For my oven the cooking time was too long so the first cookies were slightly burned. 7 minutes seemed to be enough for mine but every oven is different. If you use only a teaspoon of batter there are way more than 30 cookies here. I stopped after 48 but there was still batter left. Served for dessert with freash strawbeeries and blueberries and vanilla bean ice cream. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
