Lace Cookies

  • Author: Jennifer Swartvagher
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 5-6 dozen cookies 1x


Lace cookies are a beautiful dessert that use basic ingredients you already have in your pantry.


  • 1 1/3 cups unsalted butter
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated white sugar
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chopped dark chocolate or dark chocolate morsels, melted (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, granulated sugar, flour, and salt.
  4. Add the melted butter, eggs, and vanilla to the dry ingredients. Mix until blended thoroughly.
  5. On four clean sheet pans covered in parchment paper or silicone mats, drop rounded tablespoons of batter about 2 inches away from each other. You should have 8-10 mounds on each pan.
  6. Bake for about 8-10 minutes, or until the cookies have spread flat and are a deep golden-brown color. Remove from the oven and cool completely on the pan.
  7. Using an offset spatula, gently remove each cookie and place on a serving tray.
  8. Repeat steps 5-7 for the remaining batter.
  9. If using, decorate the cookies with melted chocolate, making sandwiches or drizzling the chocolate on top. Let cool and harden completely before serving.
