Oatmeal Lace Cookies
Lace cookies are a thin, chewy oatmeal cookie with a deliciously sugary taste, that are stackable for easy gifting.
Though I’m not a huge fan of oatmeal, I absolutely love these oatmeal lace cookies. They’re thin, chewy and sweet, but not too sweet with an irresistible texture. If you loved my popular Better than Pecan Pie Cookies, I know you’ll be a fan of these lace cookies.
I’m excited to join several of the friends I vacationed with over the summer to share some of our favorite sweet Christmas treats with you today. As you may recall, we met in Round Top, Texas for a weekend of fun and fellowship. Please take a moment to pursue all the sweet treats we made for you below!
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.
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.
Stack them in a cellophane bag with a ribbon for easy, giftable cookies!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a saucepan over medium heat, brown butter until it turns brown in color and nutty in aroma.
Using a cookie scoop, drop onto a parchment lined cookie sheet leaving ample room to spread. Bake 6 minutes or until golden brown.
