National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day is a holiday that celebrates a very particular type of oatmeal cookies: 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’re not going to want to go back to the thick, chunky oatmeal cookies of the past.
