Oatmeal Lace

Dish: Cookies & Bars
Dish Type: Other
Cooking Method: Baked
Diet: High-fiber
Difficulty: 1 / 10
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 8-12 minutes

  • 3 cups - Rolled Oats (NOT Quick Oats)
  • 1 tsp - Baking powderThey shoul
  • 1 tsp - cinnimon (optional)
  • 1 tsp - nutmeg (optional)
  • 1 stick - butter or oil (melted)
  • 1 tsp - vanilla flavoring
  • 2 - eggs
  • 1/2 cup - chocolate or buterscotch or whatever chips

Mix all the DRY ingredients together in a bowl.  Mix well.

Add the butter/oil and vanilla in.

It is important that the eggs be added last. I have no idea why but the cookies always come out much better when the eggs are added last.

Dough should be very lumpy and sticky. If it's not, add a little more dry oatmeal.

Either line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil, or spray a cookie sheet with spray oil. Drop teaspoons of cookie dough about two inches apart because these cookies spread. 

Bake in 350 degree oven from 8 - 15 minutes depending on how crunchy you like your cookies. I like them very crunchy, so I leave them in between 13-15 minutes sometimes.  Otherwise after about 8 - 10 minutes they will appear to be puffy, take them out and let them cool for a few minutes before you take them off the cookie sheet. They should be very crunchy. If they're not, add more oil.
