Florentine Lace Cookies


1/4 Cup butter

1/4 Cup shortening

2/3 Cup brown sugar

1/2 Cup light corn syrup

1 Cup flour

1 Cup finely chopped pecans

3 Cups whipping cream

3/4 cup sifted powdered sugar


Combine first 4 ingredients in heavy sauce pan.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.  (I used glass measuring dish in microwave.)  Remove from heat: stir in flour and pecans.  Cool.  Shape dough in 3/4 inch balls and place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.  Cool 30 seconds.  Quickly roll each cookie around the handle of a wooden spoon or other cylindrical object.  Cool on wire rack.  Beat whipping cream until foamy, gradually adding powdered sugar and continue beating until soft peaks form.  Just before serving, place a finger over one end of a cookie.  Fill cookie by piping with whipped cream.  Repeat with remaining cookies.  Serve immediately.


I serve these with ice cream or fruit without filling with whipped cream.

Feature Recipe


Chocolate Crinkles

These are self trimming cookies that are moist and chewy.  We make dozens and freeze them before the holidays.  They can then be taken out of the freezer as needed.  Fresh homemade cookies are minutes away!  This recipe came from a high school classmate, Sherry!
