NOTES : Make It Your Way. This variation was the result of the unexpected results we saw during recipe testing. We ended up liking our "mistake" so much, we decided to stick with it and offer it as a recipe variation! To make Hazelnut-Oatmeal Lacies, substitute 1/2 cup hazelnut-flavored instant coffee (dry) for the cocoa. Unlike the original recipe above, these cookies will be very flat, but still very chewy!
"I Don't Have That"

Sometimes we run out of such staples as milk. The same amount of melted vanilla ice cream or even yogurt will work as a substitute or, in a pinch, just use water.
