Eat: Lace Sandwich Cookies
Christmas and cookies go hand-in-hand. But maybe you’re tired of making the same cookies every year. I kinda wish I had a tradition like that, where people expect me to make the same yummy cookie every year, but I’m too dabbly for that. I’m always on the prowl for new recipes to try.
And so I stumbled onto these cookies.
These cookies reminded me a lot of the ones that you find in the cookie tins, crispy and light but with yummy chocolate sandwiched in between the two layers.
I ended up bringing this to a Christmas party, and surprisingly, I never got to try one. But I did have people tell me that they were yummy, so I’ve got to believe them. And with oats and chocolate, how can you go wrong anyway?
Lace Sandwich Cookies
1/2 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons heavy cream
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ounces dark chocolate, melted
3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine butter, cream, corn syrup, and vanilla. Mix with the beater blade until smooth. Slowly add in the dry ingredients. Mix to combine.
4. Drop about 3/4 of a teaspoon of batter onto prepared baking sheets. Try to make the cookies all the same size. Place only 12 cookies on each sheet because the cookies will spread in the oven.
6. Find 2 cookies that are about the same size. Spread one cookie with melted chocolate. Place other cookie on top. Repeat with remaining cookies.
