Bring to a boil, let boil 30 seconds, remove from heat, and slowly whisk in brandy. Then whisk in flour mixture until batter is smooth. Drop batter by generously rounded teaspoon several inches apart on cookie sheets, allowing them plenty of space to spread, a maximum of 5 per sheet. ) Bake until lacy and evenly golden brown, about 8 minutes. Remove from oven and place sheet on rack to cool until cookies are firm enough to lift with a metal spatula or your fingers, but still flexible, about 1 minute.
Perhaps you want to use a cookie cutter of a different size. That's fine, but your yield will be different. " This means that you divide the pan into horizontal rows of 4 bars by vertical rows of 4 bars to give you the suggested 16 bars. Bars can often be cut smaller or larger, which will alter your yield. To cut bars, I definitely have a preferred method—using a bench scraper. Take the tool by the handle and press the sharp edge straight down into the bars; repeat to make a complete cut either across or down the length of the pan by lifting and pressing, lifting and pressing.
Use various cutters such as men, women, Santas, Christmas trees, reindeer, and such so that there is a wide selection. Clear a large table and set the cookies in the middle along with as many different decorations as you like. I suggest at least half a dozen colored sugars, cinnamon red-hot candies, silver and gold dragées, nonpareils, miniature M&Ms, miniature chocolate chips, and chocolate and rainbow sprinkles. Then look in the baking aisle of the supermarket and load up on the kind of icing that comes in a tube; get the plain white as well as red, green, yellow, and blue.
