YEP-----COULDN'T WAIT SO I USED PECANS INSTEAD OF WALNUTS INSTEAD OF THE DESIGNATED ALMONDS INSTEAD OF OATMEAL. THEY TURNED OUT FABULOUS!!!!!!
THANKS FOR ANSWERING!

There are lace cookie recipes using oats, almonds, walnuts, pecans, and hazelnuts - so I don't see any reason why you couldn't. Whichever nut you opt to use is going to change your flavor profile, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It's just a walnut lace cookie is going to taste of walnuts, not almonds, or pecans. They will taste good, no matter which you choose. Me, I am a fan of pecans, but I'd not turn down one made with walnuts- that's for sure.
