Chocolate Chip Lace Cookies

July 13, 2016

There are a few preferences in this family when it comes to cookies, my mother likes lace cookies, Jeremy likes traditional chewy chocolate chip, and I love oatmeal raisin. 

Honestly there are few cookies I'll say no to. I just want them chewy. 

The idea of lace cookies is great, but the super crunch just isn't my speed. Jeremy actually thought he wouldn't like these because he thought they would be crunchier than they were, he ended up loving them. 

These chocolate chip lace cookies will make the regular chocolate chip cookie lover happy with their chewy-ness and satisfy the lace cookie lovers as well. They are honestly the perfect mix of crunchy and chewy.

Before we get to the recipe let me throw it out there that I think my oven runs a bit hot. So check your time, when I make these I sometimes have to adjust between batches so that some don't burn.

Chocolate Chip Lace Cookies

Makes 1 1/2 dozen
1 stick of unsalted butter
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup + 1 tbsp flour
2 tbsp old fashioned rolled oats
2 1/2 tbsp Grapenuts Cereal
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup slivered almonds

Cream butter and sugar. Add in eggs and vanilla, combine. Mix in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add chocolate chips, almonds, oatmeal, and Grapenuts. Don't overbeat. Drop rounded teaspoons of dough onto parchment paper lined baking sheets, leaving 2" in between cookies. Bake at 350 for 7-8 minutes until cookies are browned but still chewy. Allow to cool on parchment paper before removing.
