Oatmeal Lace Cookies

These cookies are delicately thin , crisp and buttery. Each bite melts away in your mouth. I got this recipe from bakedecorate It is been my favourite recipe for a long time.


Unsalted butter, softened - ½ cup (1 stick)
granulated sugar-1 cup
vanilla extract-2 teaspoons
All-purpose flour-¼ cup
salt-1/8 teaspoon
quick-cooking rolled oats-1½ cups
Parchment Paper/was paper
Confectioners’ sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray cookie sheet with

vegetable pan spray.

In large bowl, cream butter and sugar with electric

mixer. Add vanilla; mix well. Stir in flour and salt,

mixing until just combined. Stir in oats.

Scoop level tablespoons of cookie mixture onto prepared

cookie sheet, about 3 inches apart (cookies will spread

during baking). Place piece of parchment paper over

balls; using bottom of glass, gently press each ball to

form 1½-inch rounds. Carefully remove parchment paper.

Bake 11-13 minutes or until cookies are golden brown.

Remove from oven; cool cookies on cookie sheet 1 minute.

Carefully transfer cookies to cooling grid; cool


If desired, sprinkle confectioners’ sugar over cooled

cookies before serving. Store cookies between sheets of

parchment paper in airtight container at room temperature

for up to 1 week.

Makes about 24 cookies.
