White Chocolate French Lace Cookies with Santa Claus
The classic French Lace cookie, enhanced with white chocolate and sprinkles - and an unforgettable visit from Santa.
1 cup flour
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 stick butter
1/2 cup light corn syrup
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Butter 2 or three baking sheets.
In a small bowl, combine flour and walnuts. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan, melt butter, add syrup and brown sugar. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in flour mixture. Let cool one minute.
Drop level tablespoons of batter 3 inches apart on butter cookie sheets. Bake about 5 minutes, or until cookies are golden around the edges. Let stand about a minute until firm enough to handle. Loosen with a spatula, then allow to cool on racks.
Melt white chocolate in a double boiler (Note: If it's a little too thick to spread easily, add a little vegetable oil). Brush cookie tops with white chocolate and add sprinkles. Makes about 30.
