Here’s a lace cookie recipe from Debi at Nordic Needle:

Oatmeal Lace Cookies

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
  • 6 Tablespoon all-purpose, unbleached flour
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream butter and sugar until light yellow and fluffy. Add eggs, vanilla and cream until well combined. Add flour, salt, and oatmeal and mix well. Spray parchment paper with oil spray. Drop by teaspoon onto parchment lined cookie sheets. These cookies should be very flat and delicate so do not spoon more than a teaspoon of dough on your cookie sheet. Leave at least 3 inches between the cookies because they will spread out.
Bake 9-11 minutes until edges are golden brown, but not too dark. Let cool completely until edges are completely set. Using a thin spatula, lift off cookies off the sheets. Store in an airtight containers or freeze, if you have any left!

This is a traditional Swedish cookie that was served several times at camp. It is light and airy, resembling somewhat a punched or cut out paper snowflake.
