Oatmeal-Lace Cookies (Havrekniplekaker)

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

I found this delicious recipe late one evening when my daughter informed she needed to bring a Norwegian food item for a heritage day pot-luck at her school the NEXT day! I had all the ingredients and the cooking time is so short so this is the one I made for her. I'm so glad I did, these turned out to be very delicious and quite different from 'normal' cookies. The recipe is from Authentic Norwegian Cooking by Astrid Karlsen Scott.

My grandmother used to make these cookies very thin and while hey were still warm she would drape them over a broom handle so they would form a "saddle." After they had cooled she filled the saddle with lingonberries and cream...yummmmm.
