These cookies are always the first to go from the random bakery box assortment. Well, after that 1 rainbow cookie gets eaten. Since they are almost exclusively found in bakeries, they seem like this totally fancy and challenging recipe.
Surprise, they aren't!
These cookies require so few ingredients; they are just begging to be baked.
Adapted from Food Network Kitchens
1 stick unsalted butter
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup rolled oats, not instant
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp beaten egg white (I know, this is an insane measurement. Don't go crazy, try your best)
some chocolate you have on hand, perhaps some of that advent calendar chocolate that just doesn't taste great on it's own
1. Preheat oven to 350. Melt the butter and sugar in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until sugar dissolves. Transfer to a large bowl. Mix in oats, flour, and vanilla. Let cool for 10 minutes. Then mix in egg white.
2. Drop dough in mounded teaspoons, on a baking sheet. The cookies will spread like crazy so put them about 3-4 inches apart. Bake 5-7 minutes, until cookies are golden brown. Let the cookies cool on the pan for 3 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
3. When your done with all the cookie baking, melt up your chocolate. Drizzle it over your cookies and allow to harden before eating.
I was so impressed with myself for baking these cookies. Don't tell anyone that I totally burned 2 trays because I tried to do other things in the few minutes these guys bake up.
LACE COOKIES! Like you would find in a bakery! WOOO!
