Lace Cookies are thin and crispy oatmeal cookies filled with chocolate. They are a favorite Christmas cookie!
We are cookie crazy this week. I blame it on the holiday season, even though I am always crazy about cookies. At least I have an excuse this time of year:) Every Christmas I make Lace Cookies. They are a tradition in our home and I finally got around to making a batch this week. We put up our Christmas tree and enjoyed lace cookies to celebrate the season. Everyone loves these thin and crispy oatmeal cookies that are filled with chocolate.
Lace cookies are thin, crisp, and buttery. They are good eaten plain, but we always spread one cookie with melted chocolate and add another cookie on top. Lace cookies sandwiched between chocolate are the best. We use dark chocolate, but milk or white chocolate would be tasty as well. I have even used Nutella and talk about a treat! Josh likes to eat his lace cookies with hot chocolate-double the chocolate, double the fun! They are also great with milk, tea, or coffee.
Make lace cookies part of your Christmas tradition this year. These dainty cookies always make an appearance at our house. It wouldn’t be Christmas without them!
If you like these easy lace cookies, you might also like:
- 1/2 cup sifted all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 ounces dark chocolate, melted
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with Silpats or parchment paper. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and oats. Set aside.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine butter, cream, corn syrup, and vanilla. Mix with the beater blade until smooth. Slowly add in the dry ingredients. Mix to combine.
- Drop about ¾ of a teaspoon of batter onto prepared baking sheets. Try to make the cookies all the same size. Place only 12 cookies on each sheet because the cookies will spread in the oven.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cookies cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes. Carefully transfer cookies to a wire rack and cool completely.
- Find 2 cookies that are about the same size. Spread one cookie with melted chocolate. Place other cookie on top. Repeat with remaining cookies.

They’re gorgeous Maria! I would sandwich mine with Nutella for sure 🙂
These look delicious and I bet they would be even more fabulous dipped in warmed Nutella!
They are gorgeous – and I love the idea of sandwiching them with Nutella!
Yes! I’ve been wondering how to make these! Thank you, thank you, thank you for this awesome recipe! : )
Yummy! These are one of my favorite cookies. It’s easy to make. Perfect for all kinds of occasions.
Bookmarking this! We always buy cookies called “Laceys”, but I’ve never seen a recipe for them! Thank you & Happy New Year!
I just made this, and they are really good.
I make something similar, but instead of oats I add finely ground almonds and they are fantastic! I also add ganache to make a sandwich. Next time I make them I will try with oats.
Just made these and I feel silly. Mine won’t spread out and get lacey. I followed the recipe. Any suggestions?
I am thrilled to finally find a lace cookie recipe that is easy to do and does not require odd ingredients or things I do not already have. I LOVE these cookies and can hardly wait to make them.
It’s been many years since I made these. You can also roll them around a wooden spoon handle while they are still warm. If they cool too fast stick them back in the oven for a few moments…
My MIL buys these all the time at World Market… they are SO GOOD!
I think this is one of those recipes that has to be made with real butter, but I am sooo going to have to try to create a dairy free version of these!
These look amazing
I can’t do processed sugar
do you think that I could replace the granulated sugar with maple sugar
& the corn syrup with agave??
they look too delicious to ignore!!
These are probably not the lace cookies you werd looking for but they look fantastic! I am ending my search and giving these the old college try!
Thank you for sharing your recipe.
I used to stop at a store called The Cookie Jar ( right by the last stop of the No. 4 train in The Bronx) after a long day of work. They have been my favorite for more than 40 years. I used to get them with white chocolate. Somehow, with the white color sandwiched between, they reminded me of snowflakes. I am so glad I found your recipe.
I followed the measurements and instuctions exactly but my cookies didnt turn out like lace… they just look like regular cookies and i needed to flatten them before baking for it wont expand…
Delicious cookies!!! Great recipe; well written!! Thank you so much!!
If i wanted to try an exceptionally small amount of jelly in them and then dip the ends in melted chocolate, what flavor jelly would you suggest? currant perhaps? or another
Is it possible to replace the corn syrup with molasses?
I haven’t tried it!
Interesting…I’ve never had these that I can recall. Pinning to try!
Mine are not spreading either – any thoughts?
