Lace Biscuits

    27 minutes

    These delicious oat biscuits are very crisp and tend to shatter when you bite into them. Watch them carefully while baking since they do tend to burn quickly.

    I was a little dubious when I saw this as to how well they'd come out. I tweaked the recipe a bit by: using self raising flour rather than plain and baking powder. raw sugar rather than white sugar milk rather than cream the first time around. Regardless, they came out well. A bit chewy until I baked for around 7 minutes, then rotated tray and baked for another 3 minutes. At that point, after they'd cooled, very crunchy and explodey :D Second batch had a teaspoon of powdered cinnamon.  -  15 Sep 2017


    These cookies are great! I was a little worried about them sticking so I used parchment paper on my cookie sheets and it worked wonderfully. **I was also low on light corn syrup so I substituted maple pancake syrup, it was delicious!* for a fun holiday treat I put two of them together with a chocolate filling, everyone loves them.  -  29 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe was exactly what I was looking for. I added some vanilla, about 1/2 tsp. I would probably add more next time. Also, drizzling some melted chocolate on the top makes 'em look as fancy. However, no need to space 4" apart! I spaced them 1-2 inches apart with no problem.  -  23 Dec 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
