Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar on medium speed until fluffy. With the mixer running, add the corn syrup. Reduce speed to low; add bread flour, and mix to combine. Add the nuts, and mix to combine.

  • Place a 12-by-16-inch piece of parchment on a clean work surface. Spoon the dough across the middle of the parchment. Fold parchment over dough, and, using a ruler, press dough into a neat log, and roll until even. Chill log in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

  • Line two baking sheets with parchment. Remove the parchment from the log, and slice into 1/2-inch-thick rounds. Place rounds on baking sheets, spaced 3 inches apart. Bake until golden brown and lacy, 15 to 20 minutes, rotating halfway through. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool. Bake or freeze remaining dough.

Patcash: The Frozen Dough statement is in general. If you mix up several different batches of cookie dough, ie choc chip, p-nut butter, shortbread and freeze in logs then just bake up a fresh batch of different kinds of cookies. It is not as boring that way. I take ANY NEW RECIPE with a grain of salt. Like a Box of Chocolates. If its a good to great recipe I mark it KEEPER. It's a sure way to know what is a good recipe, and one to toss in the trash.I will generally toss out 6 out of 10.

The directions only mention making ONE log and then at the end says "Bake or freeze remaining dough." ! Does that explain anything? I might try making these just for fun and curosity's sake!

If the parchment is 12 inches wide...you would have 24 cookies and two rolls of dough. All purpose flour in Canada is bread flour as Canadian wheat is hard wheat. Hope this helps.

susanDR should know how many cookies this recipe makes. She makes them all the time also maybe she can answer the question about the flour which to use and why. Will check later to see if an answer appears because I can do math and I also only get 32

I am curious about asking for bread flour which is high in gluten and makes for a more coarse dough result. Just doesn't make sense for a delicate type cookie.

patcash, I think it means that if you make a variety of doughs, and store them in the freezer, then you can bake them off to make a variety of cookies. That holds true for most cookie doughs--you can make them up ahead of time and only bake them when you want cookies.

SBC, 16 x 2= 32. If you have a 16 inch roll, and you cut half inch slices, that's 32.

Next to the picture of the cookies it says:Dough prepared ahead of time and stored in the freezer, labeled with its name for future reference, can be baked quickly into a variety of cookies. This is confusing. Are they referring to this dough or cookie dough in general can be frozen and baked later? They show several different types of cookies in the box in the picture.

Flour - All-purpose flour combines hard and soft wheats; you can bake just about anything with it. Bread flour is made entirely of hard wheat. Hard wheat is high in protein and gluten, which give it a coarse and elastic texture. Soft wheat, used for delicate baked goods, is lower in protein and has more starch.

These are delicious - mu mom has made them for years. She melts chocolate and spreads and uses it to make a cookie sandwich. Dark chocolate makes them very rich and yummy. I think these are one of the reasons my husband married me LOL.
