National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day

National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day is a holiday that celebrates a very particular type of oatmeal cookie: lace oatmeal cookies. For anyone who may not know what these cookies are, they’re basically just very thin oatmeal cookies that have a delicate and almost see-through appearance.

Oatmeal cookies have been enjoyed by Americans since the late 19th century, but lace oatmeal cookies have only come onto the scene in the past few decades. Once a person tries one of these cookies, however, we’re quite sure that they will not want to go back to the thick, chunky oatmeal cookies of the past.

Observing National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day

National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day can only be observed by making some of these cookies. Yes, that’s our final ruling. Do not attempt to celebrate this holiday with ordinary oatmeal cookies or oatmeal raisin cookies. Just don’t do it.

Take the time to actually make some lace oatmeal cookies in your own kitchen. Once you’ve done that, don’t forget to share pictures of your creation with us using the hashtag #NationalLacyOatmealCookieDay. And we don’t want to see any thick oatmeal cookies.
