{RECIPE} Irish Oatmeal Lace Cookies

In celebration of St. Patrick's Day, I wanted to share a simple recipe that makes the prettiest Irish cookies! These will take you no more than 30 minutes and the results are stunning.

IRISH OATMEAL LACE COOKIES

Ingredients:

Makes 3 dozen

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) softened butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar - firmly packed
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Add the butter, sugar, and vanilla to a mixing bowl and mix on high until nice and creamy. You don't want butter chunks so it really helps to let the butter warm to room temperature. You can also throw the stick in the microwave for about 45 seconds on very low (power 2). It's ok if it starts to melt a little.

Mix the salt and flour directly into the same bowl, then do the same with the milk. Last, stir in the oatmeal with a spoon or fork. You should have a creamy somewhat sticky dough. Don't refrigerate the dough while you bake, you want to keep it nice and soft so it will spread.

Make teaspoon sized dough balls and place on a cookie sheet. Use a silpat or parchment paper so they don't stick. Flatten them a little bit with the back of a spoon or your palm. You need to give each cookie a couple inches to spread, so you should put 6 on each cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 minutes at 350 degrees.

Because these cookies are so thin they can overcook quickly. Check on them and pull them out when you see a nice brown ring around the outer edge. If your oven cooks at all unevenly, I recommend rotating the cookie sheet after 4 minutes. Let them cool at least 2-3 minutes before you try to remove them from the cookie sheet. They need to harden before you can move them.
