I love sharing my family recipes and today I’m sharing one from my Aunt Sultana. I was so happy when she wrote down this recipe for me because I’ve always loved these cookies. She is an incredibly talented baker and anything she makes tastes absolutely wonderful. These Lace Cookies are a great example of her baking mastery. I promise you will all love them as much as I do!
The tricky part about these cookies is that are very few ingredients and they don’t bake for too long. It’s essential that you use your eye when they bake so they don’t burn, but aren’t underbaked either. You also must leave enough time to bake them all. They spread a lot as they bake so you can only so about six per tray at a time.
Once they’ve baked you have to let them cool a little bit before you make them into sandwiches. Some people just leave them as they are! I like to follow my Aunt’s directions and place a thin layer of chocolate between two cookies and make them into a sandwich. This is really incredibly good! It always makes them a little easier to hold and eat since they are naturally thin and delicate cookies.
This batch makes a lot of individual cookies that are then paired into sandwiches. I like to add them to cookie gift boxes and give them to friends and family. They also are great for lunchboxes or dessert platters. You can even dress them up further with a drizzle of chocolate on top if you are interested in making them even richer. No matter how you serve them I guarantee everyone will love them. They really look like delicate lace on the baking sheet.
Thank you, Aunt Sultana, for sharing this amazing recipe! We are so thankful for your wonderful baking skills.
LACE CHOCOLATE SANDWICH COOKIES
My Aunt Sultana bakes often and these were one of my favorite cookies she made for me growing up. She recently shared this recipe with me and I am so excited! They are delicious and I’m happy to make and share them with you.
About 3 dozen sandwich cookies
1 cup unsalted butter
2 ¼ cups light brown sugar
1 tbsp granulated sugar
2 ¼ cups old fashioned oats
1 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 12-ounce bag semi-sweet morsels
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Add the butter to a heatproof bowl and melt it in the microwave.
Immediately stir in the sugars until completely dissolved.
Stir in the flour and oats until combined.
Then, stir in the egg and vanilla.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and drop batter onto the cookie sheet by the teaspoonful. Leave 1-inch between the cookies.
Bake the cookies for 7-9 minutes, or until the middle part is flat and the edges are golden brown.
Remove the cookies from the oven and allow them to cool.
While the cookies are cooling, melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl in a microwave.
Working quickly, remove two cookies from the baking sheet and spread a thin layer on underside, and then sandwich the other cookie on top. Repeat with remaining cookies.
