Recipe by LaraKN

Light, thin, crisp cookies, with oatmeal, pecan & cinnamon. Not at all like your average oatmeal cookie. This is Mom's recipe. They are fragile & don't keep more than a week, so I halved the recipe, making some of the measurements a little odd/picky. I like to press them with a glass, you want to get them thin, they do not spread/thin-out very much in baking. Mike's favorite cookie.
