Prep Time:15 minutes
Cook Time:6 minutes
Total Time:21 minutes
Yield:20 cookies 1x
1 1/2 cups shelled pistachios
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 ounces dark chocolate, chopped into small pieces
Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 350°F
Place pistachios in a food processor or blender and pulse until very finely chopped. Set aside.
In a small sauce pan, melt the butter, sugar, honey and cream together until the sugar dissolves. Take off the heat and stir in the salt and vanilla. Mix in the chopped pistachios and flour and let sit. The batter will thicken up as it sits, so don’t worry if it’s thin.
Using a teaspoon measure scoop out level teaspoons 3 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. The cookies will spread a LOT as they bake. Place cookies in oven and bake for about 7 minutes or until the edges are just golden brown and the cookies are bubbling (this is creating that iconic lace pattern). Finish baking cookies and let them cool entirely.
In a double boiler melt the chopped chocolate, constantly whisking until the chocolate is completely melted. Using an offset spatula, spread the back of the lace cookies (the flat side) with a thin layer of chocolate. Set face side down to let the chocolate set. Some chocolate will seep through the holes onto the front side–that’s what you want.
After the chocolate has set, store in a sealed container at room temperature for 7 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
