1/2 cup butter 5 ozs. flour 1/2 cup sugar 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs Shredded almonds
Cream the butter, add sugar gradually, eggs slightly beaten, flour, and flavoring. Drop by spoonfuls on an inverted buttered dripping-pan. Spread very thinly, using a knife, in circular shapes about three inches in diameter. Sprinkle with almonds, and bake in a slow oven. Remove from pan, and shape at once over the handle of a wooden spoon.
