Oatmeal Pecan Lace Cookies

A Christmas family tradition.  These very thin, crispy, lace like cookies are amazing!  Eat plain or crumble on a bowl of organic vanilla ice cream. 

 

Ingredients:

2 sticks organic butter

2/3c. organic cane sugar 

2/3c. organic dark brown sugar 

1 organic/pastured egg

1tsp. organic vanilla 

1/2tsp. baking powder

1/2tsp. sea salt 

1 1/2c. organic rolled oats 

3/4c. chopped organic pecans

1/2c. organic unbleached all-purpose flour 

 

Directions:

In a small mixing bowl add softened sticks of butter & sugars.  Mix until light and fluffy.  Add egg, vanilla, baking powder, and sea salt. Mix well.  Stir in oats, pecans and flour.  Drop by teaspoonful, about 3 inches apart on either a well-greased (I use butter) or aluminum foil lined cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 7 to 9 minutes or until cookies are lightly brown around the edges.  Let cookies cool on the pan for 2 to 3 mins before removing; then remove from cookie sheet or peel from foil. 

Makes 6 to 7 dozen.

 

Notes: 

After baking your first round of cookies, scrape the cookie sheet to remove extra crumbs then regrease/butter the cookie sheet before adding cookie dough to bake.  

Once cookies have cooled for 2 to 3 mins; remove the cookies with a metal spatula.  I have found the plastic or nylon spatulas are too thick to remove the thin cookies without breaking them. 

Place cookies on cooling rack or parchment paper to completely cool.
