National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day

Oatmeal cookies, likely inspired by oatcakes, date to the late nineteenth century, with the first recipe appearing in 1896 in a Fannie Merritt Farmer cookbook. Oats became a staple of the American diet around the turn of the twentieth century, and oatmeal cookie recipes began being printed on Quaker Oats containers soon afterward. National Lacy Oatmeal Cookie Day celebrates lacy oatmeal cookies, commonly known as lace oatmeal cookies. They differ from regular oatmeal cookies in two ways: they are particularly thin cakes, similar to wafers, and they are often topped with Sorbet or ice cream.
