These buttery, crispy and chewy oatmeal lace cookies are so elegant and deliciously addictive!

  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 11/4 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup (11/2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
