Almond Lace Cookies

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sliced almonds, chopped

Preheat oven to 350F and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

Cook brown sugar, butter, and corn syrup in a 1-quart saucepan over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Remove from heat, then stir in flour and almonds.

Spoon scant tablespoons of batter 6 inches apart on parchment paper lined baking sheets (4 cookies per sheet) and bake 1 sheet at a time in middle of oven until golden brown and bubbling, 6 to 8 minutes. (Cookies will spread to 5 to 6 inches.)

Cool cookies on sheet 1 to 2 minutes. Quickly, but carefully, remove cookies from sheet with a metal spatula and transfer to a rack to cool completely. (If they become too brittle to transfer, return baking sheet to oven for about 1 minute to allow cookies to soften.)

Makes 18 cookies
