Lemon Oat Lacies

It's day 2 of the 12 Days of Christmas Cookies series!  Today's cookie is Lemon Oat Lacies.

This is my grandma's recipe, and if I remember correctly, one of my mom's favorite Christmas Cookies.  They are "lacies" because that's how they look after their final sprinkle of powdered sugar!  Because we always have so many cookies at Christmas, we tend to make our cookies smaller.  These were portioned out using a small cookie scoop, probably about a tablespoon of dough.

Lemon Oat Lacies
yield 6 dozen

2 cups margarine
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
3 cups oats
1 Tbsp lemon zest
1 tsp vanilla

Cream the margarine and sugar, then add the flour, oats, lemon zest and vanilla.  Chill for 15 minutes (or longer), then roll into 1" balls and dip in powdered sugar.  Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.  When cooled, dust with powdered sugar.
