Oatmeal Lace Cookies

Yield: 4 dozen?
These were well received when I made this for the Moore's '04 Holiday Party. Needs research: I've had better. Try Cookie Book, etc.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 Tbl butter, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together oats, baking powder and salt; set aside. Beat egg whites until fluffy (But not to peaks). Beat yolks into sugar. Fold in whites, melted butter and vanilla. With spoon, stir in rolled oats mixture.

Grease cookie sheets. Drop batter by half tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets. Smooth out lightly with back of spoon. Do not crowd cookies. Bake until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove from baking sheets immediately.
