1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1/2 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup quick cooking Irish oatmeal
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
Using electric mixer and paddle attachment, beat first 5 ingredients in large bowl until light and fluffy. Add oatmeal, flour and salt. Beat just until soft dough forms. Transfer dough to waxed paper; shape dough into ball. Refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Using 1 tablespoon dough for each, shape dough into twelve balls. Place 3 balls on prepared baking sheet, spacing evenly apart. Flatten dough balls with palms. Bake until golden brown and "lacy," about 10 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheet until firm, about 2 minutes. Using metal spatula, transfer cookies to rack and cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough balls.
