DIRECTIONS

  • Thoroughly mix first two ingredients.
  • Add eggs one at a time and completely mix after each.
  • Add the extract and beat until smooth.
  • Whisk flour and baking powder together and add to egg mixture just enough to make a workable dough.
  • Roll a piece of dough into a ball and flatten it to make a 4-inch diameter round onto cookie sheet.
  • Roll some dough into a 1/4-inch diameter "rope" and cut 2 pieces enough to crisscross a raw egg which is placed in the center of the round and the edges sealed.o.
  • Repeat until all six eggs are used up and bake at 350 degrees F. 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Leftover scraps of dough can be shaped into cookies and baked along with the egg baskets.
