Oatmeal Lace Cookies

Here is the lovely – delicate – chewy – sweet lace cookie recipe I promised to post from the NYC Cookie Swap, the spectacular fundraiser event to help Cookies for Kids Cancer.

Oatmeal Lace Cookie

Here’s what you’ll need…

Makes 30 to 40 cookies

6 tbsp salted butter, melted

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup oats, chopped

1/4 cup flour

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

2 tablespoons heavy cream

2 tablespoons corn syrup ( I used Lyle’s Golden Syrup)

dash of salt

Preheat oven to 425

Melt the butter in a saucepan, set aside.  In a food processor, pulse the raw oats into tiny pieces.  Combine all ingredients  – the butter, sugar, oats, flour, baking powder, heavy cream, corn syrup and salt into a bowl, mixing until all ingredients are incorporated.

Using a measuring teaspoon, scoop a spoonful onto a baking sheet.  Be sure to space several inches apart, about 3 inches to prevent cookies from merging together.

Bake for 6-8 minutes, or until the cookies have spread and beginning to brown around the edges. Let them cool on the baking sheet.  Remove with a metal spatula and serve!

You can add a center filling, like raspberry jam or chocolate (white, dark or milk) and make a sandwich.  These little sweets are quick and easy to make and oh so good!

  1. There is a restaurant on the highway, close to where I live that makes these cookies, only smaller. Every time I have to pass it, I try to stop in to buy a few, they sell them for .25 a piece. I only get a few because I find them addictive and can’t stop eating them! I am so happy you posted this recipe. I am going to try and make them one day.

  2. Of course because I didn’t rush to get in line at the swap, i missed these and a lot of others. 😦 sad sad face.
    Lace cookies are so dainty compared to regular oatmeal cookies which are more hunky. Well, the sure look good, sigh!
