Lace Cookies

This is such a great recipe!  Our Jenna loves them and is always asking me to make them.  Actually, my whole family loves them.  They do take a little more time since you only use 1/2 tsp for each cookie and then after baking, they have to cool five minutes before peeling them off the foil.  If you happen to have a double oven, that would definitely help speed the process.  They are amazing and totally worth the effort!  We did get this recipe from Jenna's club volleyball coach back when she was twelve.  Coach Jen made this recipe for all of her social gatherings.


*I have seen this dipped in chocolate so I dipped only a few.  I knew my family would give me grief if I dipped them all.  I love them as is but they were also quite tasty with the chocolate.  I just dipped once side in melted chocolate and helped to even the chocolate out with my finger!

Lace Cookies

1 stick butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup quick oats
    Stir, then add:
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
3 Tbsp flour
    Stir, then add:
1 egg, beaten

Cover baking sheet with foil - shiny side up.  Using a measuring spoon, place 1/2 tsp of dough on foil 3 inches apart.  Bake for about 8 minutes at 350.  Please keep an eye on these as they burn easily.  Leave them on foil for 5 minutes before gently peeling off.
