Oatmeal Lace Cookies
These cookies are delicately thin , crisp and buttery. Each bite melts away in your mouth. I got this recipe from bakedecorate celebrate.com. It is been my favourite recipe for a long time.
Unsalted butter, softened - ½ cup (1 stick)
granulated sugar-1 cup
vanilla extract-2 teaspoons
All-purpose flour-¼ cup
quick-cooking rolled oats-1½ cups
Parchment Paper/was paper
Confectioners’ sugar (optional)
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray cookie sheet with
vegetable pan spray.
In large bowl, cream butter and sugar with electric
mixer. Add vanilla; mix well. Stir in flour and salt,
mixing until just combined. Stir in oats.
Scoop level tablespoons of cookie mixture onto prepared
cookie sheet, about 3 inches apart (cookies will spread
during baking). Place piece of parchment paper over
balls; using bottom of glass, gently press each ball to
form 1½-inch rounds. Carefully remove parchment paper.
Bake 11-13 minutes or until cookies are golden brown.
Remove from oven; cool cookies on cookie sheet 1 minute.
Carefully transfer cookies to cooling grid; cool
If desired, sprinkle confectioners’ sugar over cooled
cookies before serving. Store cookies between sheets of
parchment paper in airtight container at room temperature
for up to 1 week.
Makes about 24 cookies.
