Oatmeal-Pecan Lace Cookies

"Recently received this recipe from Weight Watchers and had to give them a try. These tiny crisp cookies are perfect for satisfying a sweet tooth. These are reminiscent of Roosie's wonderful Oataroons Recipe #97116, but with a buttery chewiness. 2 WW points per serving."

Ready In:



  • Preheat oven to 350ºF and prepare 2 cookie sheets with cooking spray or a layer of treated parchment paper.
  • Mix oats, sugar, baking powder, pecans and salt together in a large bowl until well incorporated.
  • Add butter, egg and vanilla to oat mixture;and mix well. Allow "batter" to stand for one minute.
  • Drop teaspoonfuls (not tablespoons) of batter onto cookie sheets and flatten each out, leaving 2-inches between each cookie. (They spread quite a bit while baking.)
  • Bake cookies until edges turn golden, about 9 to 12 minutes, and remove from the oven. Let cookies sit on on cookie sheets for 2 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.

    I was going to post this until I saw it already listed. My sister-in-law sent this recipe to me. I did not have parchment paper so I used waxed paper. I lost two batches becuse of my oven temperture. The rest turned out okay with 9 minutes in the oven. Also, like Roseflr my first batch crumbled because I didn't let them cool long enough. After cooling I just lifted the corner of the waxed paper and peeled the paper away from each cookie. I also made them gluten free by using g/f oatmeal. Thanks for the recipe.

    I made these to go along with a Mango Fool for dessert with girlfriends. The cookies turned out beautiful, thin and buttery. I substituted regular butter and left out the salt. I also used chopped roasted pistashios instead of pecans and the flavor is awesome. I used insulated (airbake) pans with lightly oiled parchment paper. They are very delicate; crisp, but not at all crumbly. Perhaps I needed to bake a little longer to be crisper because they actually tend to droop if held too long and would stick to each other so I separated with wax paper until time to eat them.

    I prepared these WW German Oatmeal Lace Cookies for my famlies (ancestral) German Christmas Gathering this 2009. I,m the one each year to make the traditional cookies that I have since childhood. This sub for the old traditional Lace Kache was totally more enjoyed by most of the family. They really liked the flavor and the good nutrition (non-overfattening aspect. And, I had enjoyed the ease in preparation.

    I never expected the results I got: when I tried to remove them from the cookie sheet, they just crumbled into granola-like crumbs. I followed the directions exactly except used walnuts not pecans, but that wouldn't make a difference. The flavor turned out good, and I'll eat this like trail mix or granola, maybe use to top ice cream, but it's certainly not a cookie. The biggest piece was the size of a quarter.
