#41_ Lace Cookies

These cookies are very thin, crispy and have buttery taste.
They are so delicate that they tend to shatter to pieces
when you bite into them,
but they are very good, in fact, they can be addicting.

Drop them by teaspoonfuls on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.

As they are baked they spread out and become bubbly
and form lace-like holes where they got their name from, thus,
Lace Cookies

Here's the recipe:

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 egg, slightly beaten

1 cup rolled oats, ground in food processor

1 cup granulated sugar

1/4 tsp salt

2 Tbsp. flour

1/4 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup pecans, finely chopped


1) In a bowl, mix all ingredients together with a fork. Cover with a plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator overnight. ( if you can't wait that long, at least 2 hours)

2) Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

3) Line cookie sheets with parchment papers.

4) Drop cookie dough by teaspoonfuls and about 3 inches apart on the prepared pans.

5) Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges turn light brown.

6) Let them stand for about 3 minutes or til cookies are firm then peel them off the parchment paper and transfer them to cooling racks. Cool completely before storing.

Note from MaMely:

1) This is optional: after peeling them off the parchment paper, you can sprinkle them with powdered sugar.
