Swedish Lace Cookies

Swedish Lace Cookies

  • 1 c. sugar*
  • 1/4 c. PLUS 2 tbsp. cream
  • 1/4 c. dark corn syrup
  • 1 stick butter (or margarine), softened
  • 1 c. rolled oatmeal
  • 1 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder

*Healthy Option: unrefined sugar (Sucanat or Rapadura)

Mix all ingredients together. Drop by teaspoonfuls on a greased cookie sheet about 4" apart because they will spread out. Bake only one sheet at a time at 325 degrees until golden brown, 5-8 minutes. Be sure to watch the batch because they will burn easily. Cool on the baking sheet for a couple of minutes then carefully remove. Some people leave them flat, while others will drape them over a rolling pin or broom handle. If they harden too much before you try to remove them from the pan, you can put them back in the oven for a few seconds to soften them up.
