Lacy Oatmeal Cookies

Tonight we are going over to our friends for dinner and I made the yummiest cookies.  I've had this cookbook forever and it has the best cookie recipes in it.  The Lacy Oatmeal are one of my favorites! They are buttery and crispy, great on there own with coffee or tea but I like them best with ice cream! Tonight I will be serving them over Mango Sorbet.  Courtney is making Yellow Curry and I thought it would be a nice finish.  Here's the recipe below....


1 cup quick oats
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup softened butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 325'.  Cover baking sheets with foil and coat with cooking spray.  In a medium bowl, combine the oats, flour, salt and baking powder: mix well and set aside.  In large both, combine sugar and butter with an electric mixer on medium until you have a grainy paste.  Add egg and vanilla and beat until smooth.  Add flour mixture and mix till just combined.  Drop the dough by teaspoonful 2 1/2 inches apart onto cookie sheet.  Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown.  Let cool, then peel the cookies from foil with your fingers.  Be sure to respray cookie sheets between batches.

I find you have to watch them in the last few minutes depending on how you like them, either soft in the middle or crispy.  Perfect for Holiday cookie parties or just because, hope you enjoy!!
