National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day

Oats came to the New World by way of European explorers in the 17th century. Oats were considered a health food in 19th century America. They were served to the disabled and weak as a hearty breakfast (mush/porridge) to help build back their strength.
 
With the crossover of oats into confection at the turn of the 20th century oat recipes were created with more of a sweetness and used as a dessert.
 
Lacy Oatmeal Cookies are thinner and crispier then the traditional Oatmeal Cookie.
Although they’re considered a Southern delicacy, feel free to whip up a batch. It is a national holiday, after all.
 
Here’s a second recipe I just had to share. I found it while researching this post. It looked to good not to share.
