  • With an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter and sugar until crumbly. Add eggs, vanilla, zest, and salt. Beat until pale and smooth, about 1 minute. Mix in baking powder and oats. Let stand 10 minutes.

  • Drop batter by the teaspoon, 3 inches apart, onto prepared sheets. Press each into a round with the back of a spoon. Bake until golden, about 9 minutes. Transfer cookies (still on parchment) to wire racks to cool completely. Carefully remove from parchment with a spatula.

Cook's Notes

Cookies can be stored up to 2 days at room temperature in airtight containers.

I'm not sure who came up with this recipie, but if doesn't resemble anything similar to cookies. I followed the directions to the letter and the end result was a fried lemony pile of soup with some oats mixed in. I even tried a second time a few days later with fresh ingredients and got the same result. If you are looking for a recipie for lemon oat lacies, this is definitely not it.
