Almond Cookies p. 37

“Apple-style-span” style

3/8 cup butter
1-1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1/4 cup blanched and finely chopped almonds
4-1/2 cups flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
Sift the flour and baking powder together; blend in the flour, then add the sugar, beaten eggs, and almonds. Work into a dough and form into long rolls. Place on a greased baking sheet and bake in a rather slow oven until delicate brown. When cold, cut into diagonal slices about 3/8 inch thick, place on a baking sheet, and dry in a slow oven.
