Lacy Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies are very good and I made them even better by drizzling some chocolate over them…the hubster really likes chocolate. 🙂

1 cup quick oats
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup salted butter, softened
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Cover baking sheets with foil, then coat with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl combine oats, flour, salt and baking powder. Mix well with a wire whisk and set aside.

In a large bowl combine sugar and butter with an electric mixer at medium speed to form a grainy paste. Add egg and vanilla, and beat until smooth. Add flour mixture and blend just until combined.

Drop dough by teaspoonfuls on baking sheets, 2 1/2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges begin to turn golden brown. Let cool and then peel off cookies with fingers.

Be sure to respray baking sheets between batches.

Did I change anything? I melted some chocolate chips in the microwave in a Ziploc bag, snipped the corner of the bag and drizzled the chocolate over the cookies. Everything is better with chocolate, right? 🙂 Also, these cookies SPREAD when they cook. Make sure you only use a teaspoon full of dough and make sure you leave enough space between the cookies.

What did the family think? I think they are yummy and so does our oldest kiddo. I think hubby skipped these and just ate the chocolate chips I bought to melt and drizzle over them.
