This recipe is a keeper. These cookies are incredibly easy to make, look elegant, and taste like a little piece of buttery heaven. My client contacts and team agree with me on this one 😀 The ingredients include:
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
- 2¼ cups light brown sugar, packed
- 2¼ cups rolled oats
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 375º F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicon baking mats. Set aside. Heat butter and brown sugar in a large saucepan over medium heat, stirring frequently until butter has melted and mixture is smooth. Stir in oats, flour, salt, egg, and vanilla.
Drop cookie batter by the teaspoon onto prepared baking sheets, leaving about 2 inches between each cookie to allow them to spread. They spread out quite a bit, so make sure you give each cookie enough room as it bakes. Bake for 5 -7 minutes, watching closely to prevent them from over-baking. The lace cookies should be golden brown. Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for a couple minutes and remove, then move to wire racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
