"These caramel beauties can be shaped while they are cooling, to become edible bowls for exotic desserts. If left on the parchment to cool, they will become a caramel-colored snowflake of flavor. Drizzle chocolate on them after cooling for an added bonus." — Jim Jeremiah

light corn syrup
1 1/3 cups
finely chopped pecans
These were very easy to make. I shaped them into dessert bowls and filled them with a no-bake cheesecake filling and fresh berries. Everyone raved about them and said they looked complicated to make. I will use this recipe over and over when I need to impress!
if you are looking to make florentine lace type cookies, this is not the one to use. these come out more cookie like than lace like....way too much flour. at least that's how mine came out. too thick and not wafer like which is what i was looking for and hence too hard a bite. i found a recipe on food network i am going to try with way less flour and more butter to get that wafer thin cookie. sorry.
This recipe is good but you must be prepared to experiment with your oven temperature a little. I found cooling the entire mixture and rolling the dough into small balls gave the best result. I also used a convection oven and just lowered the temp to 325 which gave a more even tone to the cookie. Don't let them get too brown on the edges or they may be slightly bitter. Use parchment paper. If you are cheap you can wipe off the parchment paper a few times with a paper towel or reuse. Also be wary of spreading. If you cool it completely they spread a little less and you can get about 8 cookies on a standard cookie sheet without them touching. Great simple recipe. With small cookies I was actually able to make about 100 cookies.
I love these cookies. As well as making them into a bowl, they can be shaped into a cone shape while still warm, filled with whipped cream and served amongst an assortment of squares and cookies. They need to be bigger for this.
I also makes the cookies quite small and dip about 1/3-1/2 of the cookie in either dark chocolate, or white chocolate.
Adds to a dessert party platter.
Terrific cookie and easy to make. Be sure to use the parchment paper!
I was dissapointed by the fact that it said this made 30 cookies. I made 1 1/2 the recipe and was baking this recipe all afternoon!!! I know there is atleast 90 + cookies!!! They taste great and I actually made them as a sandwich with melted semisweet chocolate to hold them together.
There are three things I love about these cookies...
They're a cinch to make. They look so pretty and they taste good too! What more could you ask for?
These are amazing. My family is from new york and these are just like the ones in new york bakeries!
