Almond Lace Cookies w/ Orange Buttercream and Chocolate
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1 cup coarsely ground almonds (peacans would work well too)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
*parchment paper*

1/2 cup of bittersweet chocolate, in small pieces
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 tablespoon orange juice
3/4 teaspoon grated orange peel

For cookies:
Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Stir butter, sugar, and corn syrup in heavy medium saucepan over low heat until melted and smooth. Bring to boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in flour. Add nuts and vanilla; stir to combine.
Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets; the cookies expand, so make sure to space them about 2 inches apart. Bake cookies 1 sheet at a time, until bubbling and lightly browned, about 11 minutes. If cookies run into eachother, seperate with a knife. Cool on sheets 10 minutes. Transfer to rack; cool completely.

For filling:
Melt chocolate in a mircowave or double boiler. Spread aboule a teaspoon of the melted chocolate onto the bottom of half of the cookies. Place coated cookies chocolate side up on a plate. Mix all remaining ingredients in medium bowl until smooth. Spread 1 teaspoon filling onto bottom of the remaining cookies. Sandwich together with the chocolate bottomed cookies, pressing lightly to adhere. Cookies can be made 2 days ahead of time. Store between sheets of waxed paper in airtight container at room temperature until ready to eat.

Makes about 18.
