Lacy Citrus Delights

These can easily become your very favourite cookie first time you make them. They are soooo good and easy to make. My grandchildren just love them.

You will need:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp. flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup rolled oats (not the instant kind)
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla
  • grated lemon, orange and lime


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl, mix the first four ingredients and set aside. In a medium bowl, beat egg and add rolled oats, melted butter and vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients into the wet and mix thoroughly. Add the citrus zest and stir in.

Line cookie sheets with tin foil, shiny side up. Drop 6 tsp. of batter, one tsp. per cookie,  onto each sheet. They will spread out during cooking time and become very thin and lacy. Bake for 8-12 minutes, watching carefully. They are cooked only to a golden brown stage.

Now for the big secret: DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT REMOVING THESE COOKIES FOR AT LEAST FIVE MINUTES.  If you do, they will NOT release. Cool on a rack. Peel the tin foil off the cookie. Your cookies will have a mirror-like finish on the bottom. Now, try one. Taste the freshness of the citrus and the light crunch of the cookie. Ummmmmm.

Now, am I right? Are these now your favourite cookie?  Enjoy
