Tip: Forget Cannoli Forms And Use A Whisk

The Pioneer Woman

Who knew little puddles of bubbling sugar could turn into something so beautiful? They look like they would take ages to make and you'd of course need forms to make them from and who has space or money to keep such things around? Forget what you know, these Brandy Snaps were made simply by using the handle of a whisk — now that's what we call multi-tasking!

Ree Drummond has captured our hearts time and time again and who knew this time it would be with little puddles of cooled sugar? Her brandy snaps, although a different "cookie" making process than you would traditionally use (combine ingredients in bowl, scoop onto baking sheet, bake, cool), things still seem manageable and less daunting because of one simple tip.

These cookies are made by letting the puddles of sugar drape around the handle of a whisk (or whatever rounded metal handle you have in your kitchen). Usually a recipe like this will call for a form and suddenly things get put on the back burner. You think to yourself, "Oh, I'll make them next year and watch for forms to go on sale" and then it never happens.

We're glad to see another option in constructing these beautiful brandy snaps because we're pretty sure we need some now — wait make that 5 minutes ago. Head over to The Pioneer Woman to check out the full recipe and other techniques for getting these onto your must-make holiday list asap!
