3-Ingredient Cookies

For this week’s dessert, I actually turned to my older sister’s recipe for lace cookies. I remember how her after-school ritual would include baking half a batch and sharing them with me while we completed ourhomework.

The best thing about these cookies is that they only need 3 easy ingredients. Plus, they are just a ton of fun to make! In fact, they are just as fun to make as chocolate chip muffins.

What Are Lace Cookies?

They are called lace cookies because up close, they look like they have a pattern that resembles delicate lace.

These cookies are crispy and melt in your mouth. They are the best way to make memories with your friends or kids.

Baking & Storing Tips

All of the exact steps are in the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post. First, I have some additional tips I want to share.

Line The Baking Sheets With Parchment Paper

If you line the baking sheets with parchment paper, clean-up is a breeze! Plus, it prevents the cookies from sticking to the pan.

How To Tell When Cookies Are Done

You’ll be able to tell the lace cookies are finished baking when they turn a nice golden brown color – just like in my photos.

Let Them Cool Completely

Before you try to take them off the baking sheet, let them cool completely. This is another benefit of using parchment paper. I like to pick up the parchment paper – with the cookies still on it – and move it to the counter. This lets the cookies cool off without me breaking them on accident.

Store Cookies At Room Temperature

The best way to store the cookies is at room temperature, so I keep them on the countertop in a sealed container.

When you store the cookies, place a sheet of parchment paper in between each one. This way, they won’t stick to each other.

These cookies are very sticky, so anything you can do to keep them separated is a good idea.
