Oatmeal Pecan Lace Cookies for me. Of course, we had "MOST" of the ingredients and adjusted the rest. They were beyond fabulous - quite addictive! Chewy with a hint of crunch from the nuts and caramelizing of sugar - Yummy!
1 Orange for Zesting (We used a grapefruit as it was on hand - citrus deliciousness!)
1/2 cup butter Softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar (light if you have it)
2 tablespoons flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons mik (we used skim)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
1 - Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper - makes for easy cleanup and easy removal of cookies.
2 - Zest orange (or grapefruit in our case) till you have 1/2 tsp of zest. Cream together butter and sugar in a mixing bowl till creamy and fluffy - about 3 minutes.
3 - Add in flour, milk and salt. Mix well.
4 - Add in the vanilla extract, blend.
5 - By hand, add in the rolled oats. Once mixed, add in the pecans.
6 - Shape into 1 in balls, placing them 3 inches apart on parchment paper.
7 - Bake for about 10 minutes till bubbly and edges began to brown. Take out of the oven and transfer parchment paper and cookies to cooling rack for about 2 minutes.
8 - Remove from paper (gently) and let cook on another plate for about 5 minutes.
