Ginger Snowflake Cookies by Nelson Prater

These thin cookies were so good and tasted a little like an oatmeal cookie. You should definitely try this recipe.

Ginger Snowflake Cookies

2/3 cup salted butter
2 cups quick-cook oats
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger, cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Slowly melt butter in a saucepan. Stir together oats, sugar, flour, spices and salt. Stir in melted butter, corn syrup, milk and vanilla. Line baking sheet with foil (shiny side up). Drop by rounded TEASPOON on to foil.
Press down to flatten out pretty thin. (These will spread quite a bit-to at least 2" in diameter, so leave lots of room).
Bake 6-8 minutes or until starting to brown. (You can prepare other foil sheets with dough while these are baking).
Remove from oven, pull sheet off the pan onto wire rack to cool. Slide next foil onto pan and stick in oven and repeat. After they have completely cooled, they will be easy to peel off the foil. Makes about 5 dozen cookies.
