Spring is here! Its raining like crazy but who cares? I can finally go outside without a jacket. But unfortunately, there isn’t much chance of me going outside in the first place.

I’ve been so busy over the last week and especially the weekend…

Mint milanos or lace cookies??? Can’t choose? Me either!

So, the mint milano batter wouldn’t mix correctly because my butter wasn’t soft enough. So, I’ve got no step by step photos of that for you. Sorry.

This cookie is apparently pipped out instead of cut out. Different, huh?

For the filling, I made a mint chocolate ganache.

The magic with ganache is that it looks like its never going to incorporate.

But it always does.

Fill the cookies as so.

IMG_5207 IMG_5208 IMG_5209

And then top it off. Or you can do an assembly line.

Finished beautiful cookies.

Now, for the oatmeal lace cookies!

IMG_5223

Add in a bunch of sugar and butter because that is what everyone loves!

IMG_5225

Mix.

IMG_5230

Until bubbling.

IMG_5231

Add in some flour.

IMG_5233

And some oats.

IMG_5236

And then some vanilla.

Drop onto some parchment paper.

Bake and roll into rolly thingies if desired.

IMG_5243 IMG_5246

Look at how lacy the cookies are!

Drizzle with some melted chocolate if desired.

Or dip in some melted chocolate.

Mint Milano Cookies
Adapted from here.

  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 3/4 – 1 cup powdered sugar (depending on preference)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup flour (you can use a mix of different flours. I used all purpose because that was all I had)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For the ganache:

  • 1/4 cup very hot milk
  • 3/4 cup chocolate
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract

Mix the powdered sugar and butter together until smooth. Scrape down the sides.
Add in the egg whites one by one and mix until fully incorperated. Add in the milk and vanilla and then the dry ingredients.
Transfer to a pipping bag and pipe out ovals about one inch apart from each other on parchment paper.
Bake in a preheated 350 F oven for 8-12 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix all the ingredients of the ganache until smooth. Let it cool to a spreadable consistancy.
Pair the cookies up and spread the ganache onto one of the cookies and top with its partner.
Enjoy!

Honey Oatmeal Lace Cookies
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup oatmeal
1 tsp vanilla

Mix the butter, honey, and sugar together in a saucepan over medium heat until the butter is melted. Lower the heat to low and stir constantly until the mixture starts bubbling.

Turn the stove off, mix in the flour, salt, oatmeal, and vanilla.

Line the baking sheets with parchment paper and scoop about a tablespoon of batter for one cookie. I fit about 3 cookies per baking sheet because they spread really big.

Bake in a preheated 350 F oven for 10 minutes. If desired, wait a minute after bringing out from the oven and roll into rolly shapes.

Dip or drizzle melted chocolate on top if desired.

Enjoy!

    Those lace cookies look great. I’ll have to try them for my gluten intolerant sister.
