I made 2 batches of this and was worried based on the the 1st review posted on 5/7. I followed the recipe as listed except I substituted as listed in the recipe Hazelnut Lace for the Almond Lace (i.e. changed the Frangelico for Amaretto, Hazelnut meal for Almond meal, and bittersweet chocolate for hazelnut-chocolate spread). Also, I couldn't find cake flour but I saw a video on cooking light website to not use as much all purpose flour if substituting for cake flour. So for this recipe, I used 1 tbs + 2 tsp of all purpose flour rather than cake flour. That was the only change I made. I made sure that I spread it out on the parchment paper a full 12 inches in diameter. It bubbled just as it said after the 2nd time it went in the microwave and it bubbled while cooking in the oven. I also rotated the pan after 4 minutes in the oven. It came out perfectly both times!
I made the almond version twice, followed directions exactly, and both times the cookie puffed up in the oven and would not turn "lacy". It tasted ok, but it was soft and chewy. Anyone else have this problem? I wonder if there is something wrong with the recipe?
