Oatmeal Lace Cookies

I've been wanting to make oatmeal lace cookies for quite some time now.
I've never had them before, but they look and sound pretty good.
Oats, butter and sugar, what else needs to be said?

Our usual "dessert" after supper is yogurt and fruit. One day last week we were wanting something other than that for dessert and I found this recipe on Skinnytaste and decided to try it.

This recipe appealed to me because it made about 2 dozen cookies and required a lot less sugar and butter than some of the other recipes I found.  As fancy as the white chocolate and sprinkles look, I decided not to do that.

I'd love to tell you what these cookies actually tasted like. If they were as crispy and chewy as I thought they'd be, but I can't.
They were a major fail.

See that picture above? And this one?

That's what they're supposed to look like.

Mine looked like this...

Seriously, that's what they looked like.

I read and re-read the recipe about 10 times, to make sure that I didn't miss anything. I didn't.
The only thing I can think of that made them into doughy little oatmeal balls is that I used Splenda instead of sugar. Maybe that had something to do with it?

No amount of white chocolate or sprinkles could've fixed these!

Oh well.

Maybe that was a sign that we didn't need cookies.
Or maybe I just need to try again!

  1. awww tooo bad about the cookies. Yeah it was probably the sugar, especially white sugar will make cookies crunky. Bet they tasted ok though.

    1. I figured you would know! Thanks! I think I'll try them again closer to Christmas!
      We ate some of them. They were ok - a little doughy and heavy.
