“In a word, this recipe is golden. You absolutely won’t believe how easy it is to create something so dainty and delicious. These wafer-thin Lacy Oatmeal Cookies are the perfect accessory for a simple dish of ice cream, a tall milkshake, or a smooth sorbet.” Sounds good to me, Mrs. Fields!
The brains behind Gather and Nest says, “A lace cookie is very flat, kind of crispy, kind of chewy, very buttery, with a nuttiness that is balanced with sweet. I love how these are scribbled upon with both white and bittersweet chocolate.”
