LACY OATMEAL WAFER COOKIES

This is a cookie recipe from Sweden. It is known as Havreflarn in Sweden.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
2 tbsp cream

Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Add flour, sugar, oats, and cream. Cook, stirring constantly, just until mixture starts to bubble. Remove from the heat and stir briskly for a few seconds. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls about 4-inches apart onto well greased and lightly floured baking sheets. Place only 5 or 6 cookies on a baking sheet at a time. Bake at 375 degrees five to six minutes until golden brown. Cool wafers for 2 minutes on baking sheet. Remove carefully from baking sheet with a thin spatula and place over rolling pin until firm. If cookies harden before they can be removed from pan, reheat in oven for a few seconds to soften again. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.
