Mandelbrot-this is a very plain but great cookie. It makes many and I love them with tea, coffee, hot cocoa or any other beverage!


4 c flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 c sugar, but I reduce this to 1/2 cup

4 eggs

½ c oil, but I reduce this to 1/4c

1 tsp vanilla

1 c almonds


sift flour, baking pwdr in a bowl. Put sugar in another bowl and beat in eggs one at a time. Add oil and vanilla. Add flour and almonds to the egg mixture, mixing thoroughly. Knead on a lightly floured board.


divide dough into 8 rolls about 1 inch high and 2 inches wide. Bake on a greased cookie sheet in a 350 oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven. Slice each roll into 1 inch slices. Place slices, cut sides down, back on cookie sheet. Retrun to oven and bake at 275 for 20 inutes on each side or until lightly browned and crisp.



Slow and Steady wins this race!!!
