  2. Lightly oil 3 baking sheets or coat with nonstick cooking spray, and dust them with flour, shaking off excess.
  3. Combine oats, corn syrup and oil in a medium bowl.
  4. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat and cook until it begins to turn a light, nutty brown, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. (Be careful not to burn the butter.)
  5. Pour into the oat mixture and stir to combine. Set aside.
  6. Beat egg and sugar in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer until thickened and pale, about 5 minutes. Blend in vanilla.

  8. Add the oat mixture and dried cherries; stir gently to combine.
  9. Spoon the batter by teaspoonfuls, about 2 inches apart, onto the prepared baking sheets.
  10. Bake, one sheet at a time, for about 4 minutes, or until the cookies are golden and lacy.
  11. Let cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes, then carefully remove cookies from the baking sheet and cool on a flat surface (not a rack).
