It’s here! It’s here! Holiday season is in full effect, and that means that it’s time to start making goodies! As I’ve mentioned many times, I’m a pretty terrible baker. I don’t have the patience for precise measurements and it always requires so. much. time. But I do love Christmas cookies, so finding easy to make recipes is right up my alley. These Lace Cookies are delicious -buttery, crunchy, sugary… all great things if you ask me.
The process for these cookies is very easy. The only “downside” (and it’s slight) is that you have to do many batches because you can’t fit many cookies on each sheet – but that’s not a huge deal.
Add your oats, flour, salt, egg, and vanilla.
Spoon the dough onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 5 minutes. You have to watch them! These babies go from perfect to burnt in seconds. I usually knock the oven down about 5 degrees after I’ve made a few batches because my oven tends to run a bit hot.
I prefer my cookies a little more “brown” – Not burnt, but a touch longer than golden. This is entirely up to you. If you want to jazz them up a bit – I love to spread nutella on them and make sandwiches. You could also mix a little cayenne into the batter if you’d like to make a spicy/sweet combination.
- 2 sticks of butter
- 2 1/4 cups light brown sugar
- 2 1/4 cups oats
- 4 tbsp flours
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tsp vanilla
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Melt butter and sugar in a saucepan.
- Add oats, flour, salt, egg, and vanilla to the saucepan. Stir until combined.
- Spoon onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet - about a tsp per cookie - leaving a few inches in between each cookie.
- Bake for 4-5 minutes or until golden brown. You need to watch them to see the time you will need for your oven. They will burn very quickly!!
- Leave on the pan for about 3-5 minutes after you remove from the oven, until you can move them to a rack to cool completely.
- Store in an airtight container.
