Pecan Pie Lace Cookies with Raspberry Filling

Pecan Pie Lace Cookies with Raspberry Filling


This is like the Chanukah cookie that wasn’t. Well, almost. You know that little thing called sleep? Those precious hours of rest that we all take for granted, until we haven’t had any? Well, I’m more than a little sleep deprived lately, and while I try to be organized about my blogging calendar, I all but forgot about today’s Thanksgivukkah linkup. I had  planned to post these pumpkin ricotta pancakes/cheese latkes but you know what happens to plans when you’re a walking zombie. I did post them alright. Just a wee bit too early.


Sure, I could have skipped out on the linkup fun altogether, but the truth is, I was kind of excited about challenging myself to another Thanksgivukkah mashup recipe. And there’s something else too. I’ve got to come clean with y’all.  Me, the serial non-baker. The one that swore off dough’s and pastries of any kind — has got the baking itch.


Yes, it’s true. I’ve been baking. A lot. Cakes, bars, muffins and cookies. And I’m even kind of enjoying it. So when I realized I needed to come up with another Chanukah/Thanksgiving recipe, I went straight for my favorite of all baked goods – cookies!


I’ve been making lace cookies for years. so when I thought about what kind of cookie to make, I decided to adapt my classic lace cookie recipe to include pecans as a riff on pecan pie. Then, instead of filling the cookies with chocolate, I used raspberry jam, ala Chanukah jelly donuts, and finally, instead of a the traditional chocolate drizzle over the top, I decorated the florentines with Chanukah symbols. What I didn’t realize is just how amazing everything would come together. Raspberry jam, chocolate and lacy pecan cookies are like a match made in heaven!


I hope y’all enjoy my last minute Thanksgivukkah recipe. Be sure to check out all the other great mashup recipes in the Kosher Connection linkup below!

  1. I remember those sleep deprived days, well behind me now!

    Wow, I am impressed that you are baking, maybe I could start as well since I always leave the baking to my sister. I also think I could try making these cookies, I have better results with sweets that don’t need to rise and when there is no flour involved. Great and beautiful recipe!

  2. These cookies look amazing. It’s funny, I’ve had them before at events but never knew their name and never stumbled upon a recipe. I’ll definitely come here if I ever make them, so simple and delicious.

  3. How many lace cookies (not the jam filled sandwich cookies) does this recipe make?

    Your sandwich cookies are beautiful and I can imagine very tasty.
