4 eggs
1 cup oil
1 cup sugar
2 cups almonds, roasted, chopped into small pieces
2 cups Quaker oats
2 cups Five Roses flour
1 tablespoon baking powder


Mix all ingredients together well.

Drop 3/4 tablespoonful batter for each cookie onto cookie sheets.

Do not fix or play with the batter, just leave as batter falls off the spoon, so each cookie has its shape and size.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes.


The recipe in this entry was first published in "Beary Delights" a cookbook put together by the staff at Pierre De Coubertin School in St.Leonard, Quebec. The private publication was printed in 1996; it was used to raise funds. The recipe was contributed for the use in "Beary Delights" by Mrs. Mambro. A staff member, who recently retired from his job at Pierre de Coubertin School, suggested that the recipes published in "Beary Delights" could be re-printed on this website. Photo: Mary Melfi.
