Butterscotch Lace Cookies

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

These need to stand overnight. Do not make them in hot, humid weather as the cookies absorb moisture from the air and become limp.

INGREDIENTS (for 3 servings):


  • Add sugar to butter or margarine; pour over rolled oats. Let stand at room temperature overnight so oats absorb butter.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  • Mix remaining ingredients into oats. Drop level teaspoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart on heavily greased baking sheet. Bake only 12 cookies on a sheet.
  • Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until brown around edges. Allow to remain on sheet a few minutes, until firm, then immediately remove with spatula to cooling rack.
