Cookie Week Day 2: Lacey Oatmeal Cookies

I have made the executive decision that this is officially COOKIE WEEK! This occurs as a reflection of my recent diet, the number of cookie pictures on my camera, and the annual mid-December world-wide obsession with all things cookie. 

Today’s recipe comes from 6x6. Or, more specifically, 6x6’s Aunt Michelle. 

The recipe is super-simple and these cookies are insanely addictive. For our weekend Cookie Exchange, 6x6 made them with chocolate chips.

My only concern about these cookies is that they’re very fragile. My mama has this life rule that broken cookies don’t count. If that is the case, then I may or may not have recently consumed a whole lot of nothing...
