    I’m not typically a fan of oatmeal, but the brown sugary, chewy texture of these Lace Cookies is out of this world – and addicting! If you loved my popular Better than Pecan Pie Cookies, I know you’ll be a fan of these lace cookies.

    What Are Oatmeal Lace Cookies?

    Lace cookies are named after their lacey appearance they receive when the sugar bubbles and creates tiny little gaps. Oatmeal lace cookies are dropped onto a lined cookie sheet by teaspoonful or with a cookie scoop and as they bake, they become flat, giving them their thin, chewy body.

    How to Gift Lace Cookies

    They’re one of my favorite Christmas cookie recipes. They’re the perfect cookie to bring to a cookie exchange. You can even  stack them in a cellophane bag and tie with a ribbon to gift to friends, family, neighbors and coworkers!

    How to Make Lace Cookies

    They’re incredibly fast and easy to make in just one dish. A pot, in fact!  No need to soften the butter when you’ll be browning it to perfection to caramelize the brown sugar.

    • Brown butter in a saucepan until it turns brown in color and nutty in aroma.
    • Remove from heat and mix in brown sugar, oats, vanilla and egg.
    • Stir in salt and flour.
    • Drop onto parchment lined cookie sheets and bake.
