Grandma’s Oatmeal Lace Cookies

I’m so excited to share with you my Grandma’s Award-Winning (literally, took home 1st place in her County Fair in 2007) recipe for Oatmeal Lace Cookies. I love any variation of oatmeal cookies to begin with, so I was really looking forward to trying out the “lace” type!
 {Here’s what you’ll need}

  • 1 cup quick oats (uncooked)
  • 1 cup flower
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 cup Splenda (or 1 cup sugar)
  • 3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp. vanilla


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  • Line a cookie sheet with foil, shiny side up
  • Mix together oats, flour, baking powder & Splenda
  • Add remaining ingredients, stirring well (note: it will have a very thick consistency)
  • Drop no more than a tablespoon of dough at a time on the foil, spacing well, as they spread when baking
  • Flatten dough some and bake 10-12 minutes, or until edges brown
  • Remove foil with cookies on it
  • At this point, if cookies stick together, cut apart with a spatula
  • Cool cookies before removing from foil
  • Makes about 3 dozen depending on size

As I was making the cookies, I was a little concerned because the mixture was such a thick, heavy consistency, but that’s totally normal and worth it in the end. These are some of the most delicious cookies I’ve ever had! Thanks Grandma!
