  • About


  • 4 whole eggs
  • 1 lb. light brown sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 oz. citron, cut fine
  • ¼ lb. almonds blanched and cut fine


Beat eggs well with Dover beater, add sugar gradually, and beat again. Mix flour and cinnamon with chopped nuts and citron, and combine the two mixtures. Bake in three flat greased pans, in hot oven. When cool, cut into regular strips one-half inch wide, five inches long. Before taking out of pans, frost with one cup confectioners' sugar, two tablespoons water and flavoring to taste.
