Pecan Lace Cookies
I bought pecans for the salad (see below) and the epicurious recipe had links to other pecan dishes and I was tempted by the pecan-filled desserts. I decided on these cookies which were supposed to be sandwich cookies with orange frosting in the middle. The cookies came out really good and looked great too! The frosting I kind of ruined - wrong consistency entirely. I think I wanted it to be more orangey so added too much juice which made it too runny. I kept adding more sugar but it wasn't working so the frosting leaked through the lacy holes in the cookies. Still tasted good though. The cookies are totally good on their own anyways, and maybe next time I'll take another stab at the frosting. Yum!
