A sweet oat biscuit that spreads thinly in baking and is then carefully 'peeled' off of baking tray, a bit like lace! Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, or rolled up and dipped into melted chocolate.

Wow! If you want to impress your friends and family, make these cookies. Here's what I did: I followed the recipe precisely. I used a 1 teaspoon measuring spoon and made sure I just put a teaspoon for each cookie. I actually wound up making 58 cookies from this recipe. Then I melted semi-sweet chocolate chips and spread the chocolate on the flat side of a cookie and put another cookie on top. They turned out very elegant - better than a Pepperidge Farm cookie. Of course, your using two of these cookies to make one big cookie, but it's worth it! I recommend that you use a Silpat baking sheet (I have two). Let the cookies cool well before you take them off the sheet. Cool on wax paper before putting the choclate on them. I am going to use this recipe for special occasions. Your family will think you've attending a french culinary school! - 11 Jan 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These are great! Followed recipe as written except I didn't cream the sugar and butter...I combined the dry ingredients and then I added the wet ingredients and mixed everything together. And I used regular rolled oats instead of quick-cooking. I patted down the balls a bit with my fingers before baking them to ensure even baking. I baked them on ungreased silicon mats and they popped right off when I peeled the mat off the pan. They are very sweet - sort of like a very crunchy sugar cookie. Very tasty when sandwiched with whipped cream between two cookies! - 20 Aug 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
