  • Lacey cookies
    My Great Aunts' use to make lacey cookies with me when I was little. The resemble a flat oatmeal cookie. I think they may have called for a lot of butter too. If anyone has this recipe it would be nice to make these cookies of my past.
    Thank You

    1/4 cup soft butter
    1 egg
    1/2 Tsp vanilla
    1/3 cup raw sugar
    2/3 cup firmly-packed light brown sugar
    1-1/3 Tbs. all-purpose flour
    1 cup finely chopped walnuts

    Beat butter and vanilla together till smooth.
    Add raw sugar, brown sugar, and flour to the egg mixture. Mix thoroughly and stir in the walnuts
    Drop dough by the Tsp. onto a greased baking sheet.

    Bake at 350 degrees for 7-8 minutes. Cool on baking sheet before removing.

    Recipe will yield 2-1/2 dozen cookies.

    Note: These cookies are very similiar to a very thin cookie called Tulie. They are very lacey in apperance and the texture is crispy.

    They spread so allow enough room in between cookies.

    My grandmother made oatmeal cookies that were only lacey around the edges. No one has ever been able to duplicate the cookies. Even when she was alive and people asked her for the recipe, she would say she used the recipe on the quaker oats box...but no one else's cookies came out like hers.
