Lace Cookies

I came across a recipe for lace cookies on Allrecipes about a year ago.  I was intrigued by the idea of these crisp, airy cookies, but never got around to making them.  Tonight, I had a bit of a sweet tooth, and started looking through my old saved recipes.  I decided to try them, and boy am I glad I did!  They were like nothing I've ever had before- paper-thin with a caramel-like flavor.  Delish!

Be sure to use a teaspoon to measure out precise amounts of the dough.  My cookies varied in size and some of the larger ones didn't stay together when I removed them from the foil.

Adapted from Allrecipes

1 cup quick cooking oats
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


1.  Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Cover baking sheets with foil, then coat the foil with a non-stick cooking spray. 

2.  In a medium bowl, combine oats, flour, salt, and baking powder. In a large bowl, cream sugar and butter until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Mix in the flour and oat mixture until just combined. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets, 2 1/2 inches apart. 

3.  Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 10 to 12 minutes, or until edges turn golden. Cool, then carefully remove with a turner. Be sure to re-spray baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray between batches.
