A Hint of Salt Takes These Crisp Oat Cookies to the Next LevelDecember 9th, 2015
For Day 3 of our 12 days of Christmas cookies, we’re bringing you these crisp, lacy oat cookies. The hint of salt is just enough to cut the sweetness. Try them sandwiched around chocolate or marshmallow, or enjoy on their own.
Salty Swedish Oat Thins
Yield: 30 cookies
Active Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line three baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whip sugar and egg together until light in texture and pale in color. Fold in butter, oats, oat flour, baking powder, and salt. Let rest 5 minutes.
Place heaped teaspoon-sized amounts of dough 3 inches apart on lined baking sheets—the dough will spread. Bake in oven 6 to 7 minutes. Let cool completely on baking sheet before removing.
