    My mom's lace cookies are a must have dessert for Christmas.  I think my family would actually riot if she didn't bring them to the family Christmas dinner!

    It took some digging, but I found the recipe card.


    Ingredients

    1 cup sifted flour

    1 cup chopped, flaked coconut

    1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

    1/2 cup light corn syrup

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    1/2 cup butter


    Directions

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.


    Mix together flour and coconut.  Combine syrup, brown sugar, and butter in a heavy saucepan.  Bring syrup mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat, then gradually blend in flour mixture.  Then, add vanilla.  Drop cookie dough by teaspoonfuls onto a cookie sheet lined with foil or parchment paper.  Bake 8 to 10 minutes.


    Enjoy!
