ingredients

  • For Oatmeal Lace Cookies With Dried Tart Cherries:
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup chopped dried tart cherries

directions

Set oven rack in the center; preheat to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil 3 baking sheets or coat with nonstick cooking spray, and dust them with flour, shaking off excess.

Combine oats, corn syrup and oil in a medium bowl. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat and cook until it begins to turn a light, nutty brown, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. (Be careful not to burn the butter). Pour into the oat mixture and stir to combine. Set aside.

Beat egg and sugar in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer until thickened and pale, about 5 minutes. Blend in vanilla.

Stir together flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl; fold into the egg mixture. Add the oat mixture and dried cherries; stir gently to combine.

Spoon the batter by teaspoonfuls, about 2 inches apart, onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake, one sheet at a time, for about 4 minutes, or until the cookies are golden and lacy. Let cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes, then carefully remove cookies from the baking sheet and cool on a flat surface (not a rack).
