Almond Lace Cookies

almond lace cookies passover gluten free

I made these lace cookies at the end of Passover and then again a week later because they were that good. If you are gluten free or if it's Passover, potato starch is perfect, otherwise flour is fine. They do need time to cool and don't transport so well, but I froze them and brought them to a friend anyway and they were still great, so enjoy.
