My mom used to make these - they were our favorites! They are very crisp, and tend to shatter when you bite into them. Watch them carefully while baking since they do tend to burn quickly.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 2 tablespoons cream
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Sift together flour, baking powder and sugar. Add oatmeal, light corn syrup, melted butter, cream and vanilla. Blend well.
Drop on ungreased cookie sheet 4 inches apart, using 1/4 teaspoon as a measure. Bake in 375 degree F (190 degrees C) oven for 5-7 minutes. Let stand a few seconds before removing from pan.
