From Sons of Norway District 5 Barnebirkie Cookie Book
Recipe from Lorraine Clyne--Askeladden Lodged 5-610

Melt the butter in a small saucepan and stir in the oatmeal. Beat egg until foamy with the sugar. Mix together the baking powder and flour and stir into the egg mixture along with the oatmeal mixture.

Drop batter, 1 level tablespoon at a time, onto greased and floured baking sheets, 2-3" apart.

Bake at 375°F for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Place baking sheets on wire racks to cool, about 1 minute (cookies should still be hot and flexible, but cooled until firm enough to move). Quickly lift cookies with a spatula; drape them over a horizontal broomstick covered with foil; press gently into saddle shape. (If cookies harden and stick to pan, return to oven until softened.)

When cool, lift off broomstick. Store airtight at room temperature 2 or 3 days; freeze for longer storage. Makes about 2 dozen.

The Sons of Norway Barnebirkie is a noncompetitive free cross-country ski event for children ages 3-13 and is held annually in Hayward, Wisconsin. Sponsors of the event are Sons of Norway and District 5, Swiss Miss®, Norsk Skaukatt Nordic, and the American Birkebeiner. At the end of the event, there is hot cholcolate from Swiss Miss® and more cookies than most children have ever seen in one place thanks to Sons of Norway volunteers from District 5. To all those who contributed recipes, the Sons of Norway District 5 Barnebirkie Cookie Book was created.
