These are a favorite at our house. They are delicate and beautiful. Try dipping just the edge of one side in some melted chocolate and sprinkle with coconut or chopped nuts, perhaps pistachios or crushed peppermint would be pretty. Mostly, we like them unadulterated. They make wonderful gifts. For a nice dessert, try mixing 1 quart of softened vanilla ice cream with ground cinnamon to taste. Freeze to set. Serve a scoop with a lace cookie atop. Note: The parchment paper is very important. Also, the batter will appear pretty runny. It's fine. After I place a spoonful on the parchment paper, I quickly run my finger across it to even them out or round them some. Unsure yield.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- In a large saucepan, melt the butter. Remove from heat and stir in oats, sugar, egg, and vanilla. Add flour, salt, and baking powder. Drop 3” apart by rounded teaspoonful on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread each dollop slightly to distribute the oats. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and let cool completely on cookie sheet. Carefully remove from the parchment with a spatula to a wire rack.
- Store in an airtight container – if you have any left to save.
