These thin and crispy Lace Cookies are a quick and easy treat made with just 7 ingredients. They’re sweet, buttery caramels in crispy cookie form!



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  2. In a medium-sized saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar and milk. Cook over low heat, stirring regularly, until butter and sugar have melted.
  3. Once butter and sugar are melted, turn heat up to medium and cook mixture just until it begins to boil.
  4. Remove from heat and add vanilla extract, flours and salt, stirring until completely combined.
  5. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes, then drop by 1 1/2 teaspoons (half a tablespoon) onto prepared cookie sheet. Space cookies about 2-3 inches apart. The cookies will spread quite a bit in the oven. The cookie dough mixture will thicken as it cools, but that won’t affect the outcome of the cookies.
  6. Bake for 7-10 minutes, or until the cookies are golden in color. Keep an eye on them towards the end of baking because they can burn quickly.
  7. Allow cookies to cool for 3-4 minutes or until they are firm enough to move, then transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling.


Store lace cookies in an airtight container. They should stay fresh and crispy for 5-7 days.
