Oh this is a dear old recipe. I was living with another family during my college years. When we would come home from dates and activities the mom would cook goodies for us. One was Oatmeal lace. They don't come off of the foil until cool and it was a contest to see how much cookie you could get off before completely cook. These are so very good. Love and care for this dear recipe of mine!
pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
1 cube (1/2 cup) butter melted
add: 1 1/2 cups oatmeal (I use the old fashion)
Sift together: 3/4 cup white sugar, 1 teas. flour (that's it folks!), 1 teas baking powder, and 1/2 teas salt
Stir into butter with a fork
Add 1 egg beaten with 2 teas Vanilla Extract
Lay aluminum foil on at least two cookie sheets (you'll need one to cook and one to cool)
Now this is important place about 1 teaspoon of dough about 3"apart on the cookie sheet. These spread like crazy. They turn to a puddle on the sheet. Not to worry!
Cook 8-10 minutes. The point being no part of the cookie should look doughy. They need to be a rich light brown all over.
Remove the foil to a cooling sheet being careful to keep cookies flat. DO NOT touch until the cookies are completely cool. The cookies will then lift right off.
makes about 2 2/2 dozen.
The cookies are sensitive to moisture here in the Northwest I keep them in a Tupperware sealed container.
They are crisp!
The bottoms look so smooth and crisp
