Lace Cookies

This recipe is from my grandma's recipe box and one I've wanted to try for awhile. The cookies are light and crunchy. They're very thin and delicate. The recipe states they're almost paper thin. It's very important to follow two rules in this recipe: 1. Use foil. You have to carefully pull the foil away from the cookie. If you just baked them on the cookie sheet, you'd end up with crumbs.  2. Cool them completely before removing from the foil. They're stronger and thus less likely to break when they're cooled.
