Cooking with Katie



Auntie’s Lace Cookies

I like this picture because it gives you an idea of just how big these cookies are! They’re super thin and crunchy, and spread out so much when you bake them that they end up 3x bigger than what they started as. I’m not really sure which “auntie” of mine invented these, but they’re irresistible. They’re full of brown sugar, butter, and oatmeal….which if you think about it, is good for you. So it doesn’t make you feel too bad for eating them around the holidays! Enjoy!

Auntie’s Lace Cookies

  • 2 1/4 c quick oatmeal
  • 2 1/4 c brown sugar
  • 5 tbsp. flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 c melted butter (2 sticks)
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Stir the ingredients together and bake on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Only put 5 or 6 on a cookie sheet because they SPREAD out! Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes, or until desired crispness. Let cool on pan for 5-8 minutes then remove to a cooling rack. Store at room temperature.
