1920s cookbook strikes again!

So I decided to try another recipe from my Fannie Farmer School of Cooking 1920s find.  This week it's "Scottish Fancies"

All you need is:

Let's take a look at the recipe, shall we?

A blurry picture, my apologies, however we need to double the above, so take:
2 eggs, 1 cup sugar, 1.5 tbsp melted butter, 2 cups rolled oats, 1tsp salt, and 1 tsp vanilla.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Here is a step by step picture look at what you do:
Step one: Beat egg until light

Step two: Add sugar gradually    
The following pictures are step three: adding the remaining ingredients.

Adding melted butter
Rolled oats going in!
Salt is next
Vanilla to make it taste that much better

Next, putting it on a cookie tray:
One teaspoon to start
Onto some parchment paper we go! Parchment paper is the best, by the way, multi-use and easy to clean up.
Spread it thin with a fork dipped in cold water.  Why a fork in cold water? So it doesn't stick to the dough.

Next, we bake for about 13 minutes!
In the oven, set at 350 F.
 They should end up looking like this:
Baked until delicately golden brown.

Serving suggestion:
Wonderful with tea on a cold winter's day!
Now go and make some Scottish Fancies! (they are Mr. K's new favorite)
