This Maple Lace Oatmeal Cookie Recipe is a delicious vegetarian dessert using all natural ingredients.
A delicate oatmeal cookie with the rich flavor of maple syrup.
1/2 cup butter (1/4 pound)
3/4 cup maple syrup
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1. Beat the butter with a wooden spoon until smooth. Add the maple syrup and vanilla.
2. Mix in the salt and baking soda, then stir in the rolled oats. Stir in flour and mix until smooth.
3. Drop the batter onto buttered cookie sheets with a teaspoon. Leave the cookies plenty of room to spread out.
4. Bake in a 325 degrees Fahrenheit oven for about 15 minutes or until the cookies are firm. Let the cookies cool a few minutes on the trays to set before you remove them. Lace cookies have a very fragile texture.
Yield: 3 to 4 dozen
