Praline Lace cookies are a wonderfully versatile cookie. They can be formed into a variety of shapes and used as a crispy, nutty vessel for mousse, ice-cream, or fruit. I like the non-pecan version (made with almonds) filled with Nutella mousse and raspberries.
I have only one problem with these cookies. I have never, ever been successful with them in the summer. This time was no exception. They were fantastic for the first day - the next day the humidity wreaked its havoc on my beautifully molded cones and cigarettes causing them to fall flat. I ended up with a sticky, buttery heap. I've resigned myself to the fact that these will be my fall & winter cookie. How the heck do they manage these in the bayou?
Fill cones and cups with mousse, ice cream, berries or whatever you desire.
