German Lace Cookies
1 C. Old Fashioned Oats
½ C Melted Butter
1 C. Sugar
¼ t Baking Powder
2 T. (Heaping) Flour
½ t Vanilla
¼ t Salt
Makes 2-3 dozen
Mix all ingredients together and let set in refrigerator for 20 minutes. Grease and flour cookie sheets (or use parchment paper). Drop by spoonful onto cookie sheets leaving 1½ inches between cookies (they spread a lot). Let set on cookie sheet until cool.
Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes - they should be more gold than brown
- Melt semi-sweet chocolate chips and thinly frost the bottom of one cookie. Pair with another cookie of equal size and make a sandwich with bottoms together. These will be just like the German lace cookies you get at Trader Joe's – only fresher!
- When cookies are still warm but not hot, carefully remove from cookie sheet and drape cookie over muffin tin to finish cooling. These make great little ice cream cups for parties.
- Drizzling chocolate over anything makes it look and taste better - these cookies are not an exception.
