  • Chocolate Lace Sandwich Cookies

25 Days of Christmas Cookies Day 15-Chocolate Lace

December 15, 2015

Chocolate Lace Sandwich Cookies

Oh my, these dainty Chocolate Lace Sandwich Cookies are kind of addicting! I found the recipe in this month's Sunset Magazine and wow, are they ever delicious. 

Ingredients:

1 cup rolled oats (the original recipe calls for the quick-cooking ones but I used old-fashioned)

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup salted butter, melted

1 large egg, beaten with a fork

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla 

1 tsp. orange juice

3 Tbsp. flour

1/2 tsp. salt

6 oz. semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350F with racks in upper and lower thirds.

In a medium bowl, mix oats, sugar, and butter together with a wooden spoon. Stir in egg until well blended, then vanilla and orange juice. Add flour and salt and stir to mix. Batter will be somewhat thick.

Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or nonstick baking liners. Drob batter by half-teaspoonfuls onto sheets, at least 2 inches apart (cookies will spread), up to 12 per sheet. Bake until golden brown, switching positions of sheets halfway through; 8-10 minutes total. 

Cool cookies on baking sheets until just holding their shape, about 2 minutes (don't wait until they're completely cool as they will be harder to remove). With a thin metal spatula, gently transfer to cooling racks and let cool completely.

Put chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 20-second bursts until almost melted. Stir to melt completely.

Thinly spread chocolate on flat side of half of cookies. Sandwich with another cookie and let harden on racks, about 2 hours at room temperature.
