    Chocolate Lace Cookies

    Pretty much the only thing lace my husband saw on Valentine's Day were these cookies... is that rad or lame? I really think I'm gonna go with rad. I mean lace is way over rated. It isn't even material... it is like flowers but see through flowers... those don't exist... you can't see through flowers so really lace is like a material that lies to you... a misleading piece of fabric... clearly I don't own any... and clearly I get a little defensive about it!

    Good news is... we aren't talking about fabric. We are talking about cookies... amazing cookies. They had these amazing things at a mexican brunch we went to on Sunday. Our table literally ate all of the cookies off the buffet (true story).....

    They are light and crispy and sweet but not too sweet... just perfect. We started talking about the delights... trying to figure out if there was toffee in them... I, of course, looked the recipe up from my iPhone... no toffee. But during this process I realized I had all of the needed ingredients in my pantry at that very moment.....

    So... when we got home I started to bake....

    Chocolate Lace Cookies

    You will need:

    2/3 cup butter

    2 cups quick oats (which is oatmeal... so just say oatmeal)

    1 cup sugar

    2/3 cup flour

    1/4 cup light corn syrup

    1/4 cup milk

    1 tsp vanilla

    12 oz bag semi sweet chocolate chips

    foil



    In a glass bowl, melt butter then add oats, sugar, flour, milk and vanilla. Stir well then add corn syrup.



    Looks like oatmeal!



    Line your pan with foil. Drop mix onto foil by 1 teaspoon.



    Cookie mix needs to be 3 inches apart. Spread with spatula.



    Bake at 375 for 8 minutes or until golden brown. You want them to be crispy but not burnt.



    Remove foil from pan and let cool on cooling rack. When cool, set the foil onto counter top and use spatula to slowly pry them from foil. The first few I tried were really hard to remove because I did not bake them long enough. The rest came off pretty easy. (see them on the plate over there... not golden brown enough)



    You may have foil stick to some of the cookies. Don't worry, it will peel right off.



    Because you can only bake 6 at a time, I figured out a little system. As soon as I pulled a batch out I would move the foil to the cooling rack, re-foil the pan and start to spread the new batch. They spread much better when the pan is warm. By the time I got those into the oven the others would be cool and I could peel them.... then the batch in the oven would be done and so on and so forth... Set all your baked cookies aside.

    Now... melt your chocolate. I used my double boiler but you can just melt them in the microwave. Use the melting directions on your package.

    Take a spatula and spread chocolate onto the smooth side of one cookie. Now sandwich another cookie on top. YUMMMMMMMO.

    Put them in the refrigerator for just a bit. To harden the chocolate.



    I think it made about 24 cookies.... I honestly don't know because we were eating them faster than I could count them. Delish!

    This really wasn't that fun of a photo shoot because no picture will do these ladies justice. They are delicious.

    I think I have everything to make these except the chocolate chips. But I do have a thing of the dipping chocolate you use to dip strawberries. Think I will see how that turns out.

    They were pretty easy. The key to getting them off the foil was letting them cook long enough to be crispy :). Thanks for the suggestion... I'm gonna submit the recipe :)
