Sunday Cookies

Sundays definitely are bittersweet.

It's still the weekend but work is looming over your head.

To soften the blow I decided to make cookies this afternoon. I wanted to bake but I also wanted to make something easy/ with few ingredients today. I went with lacy oatmeal cookies. These are a family favorite because of their light and buttery/delicate taste thus making it "ok" to have multiple cookies in one sitting.

However, I forgot how temperamental this recipe can be. Oops. It really depends on the weather, the oven, and the equipment you have.

*You must have parchment paper in order for this recipe to work*

Whip up the short ingredient list together

bake until thin and lace like

Since I didn't have parchment and I wasn't use to the oven this is what happened....

Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Recipe:

1 cup quick oats

1/4 Cup all-purpose Flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 stick of butter (room temp)

1 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 egg

Mix butter and sugar together until smooth. Then add vanilla extract and eggs.

In another bowl mix flour, baking soda, oats and salt.

Add dry to the wet and your done. This cookie dough does taste devine.

Drop cookies onto a sheet pan lined with parchment. A little dough goes a long way with these cookies so think small around 1/2 to 1 teaspoon. Bake at 325 for around 8 minutes or until golden and lace like.

Let cookies cool. These cookies are very delicate and break easily so store in durable container.

Yum. These may be enough to make your sundays a little brighter or perfect after a large in charge dinner or with tea or.....okay basically with most anything.
