Almond Lace Rolls Recipe
3/4 cup unblanched almonds,*
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp (rounded) flour
1 tbsp heavy cream
1 tbsp milk
* finely ground
These cookies require precision timing and fast action but the
results are worth the trouble. I make them for holidays and special
occasions, but they are delicious anytime.
Preheat oven to 350ø. Butter and flour baking sheet.
In a small, heavy pan, place all ingredients. Cook over low heat,
stirring constantly until butter melts. Drop by teaspoonful: onto
baking sheet (do not bake more than six at one time).
Bake at 350ø for 7-9 minutes. Cookies should be only slightly brown
and still bubbling at the center. Let cool only for a minute or so
until the edge is firm enough to lift with a thin spatula Then,
working quickly, lift cookies and turn them top side down onto paper
towels. Roll over the handle of a wooden spoon to get a cylinder
shape and let cool until crisp.
Use a fresh cookie sheet for each baking to avoid cookies sticking on
sheet. If cookies get too firm to roll over the spoon handle, place
back in the oven for a few moments.
Store cookies in an airtight cookie jar or tin. They will keep for a
long time, and can be made well ahead of the holiday season.
Variations: These cookies also can be left flat-make them smaller if
you do that; however, they don't have the flair of the rolled lacy
effect. Or roll ends of cooled cookies in melted chocolate.
Yield: 2 dozen. Margo H. Tyler, Silver Spring, MD

Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
The case against low carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Eating more animal-based products could lead into increased consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which some authorities believe will increase the probability of heart disease.
Most of the negative side effects stated, such as feeling tired, constipation, diarrhea, or bad headaches seem to pass quickly, but critics contend that low carbohydrate diets are not without permanently harmful side effects.
The brassica family, Wonderfoods that aid Your diet
(includes Kale, Broccoli, Turnip greens and Rutabaga)
Known as cruciferous vegetables, these are rich in vitamins (folate and vitamin c, for example), minerals (eg. potassium and selenium), fibre, chlorophyll, antioxidents, and indole-3-carbinol.
Over and above their most other beneficial effects, the minerals and nutrients in these are thought to significantly lower the risk of getting cancer.
