Mom's Almond Slices
recipe from Lisa@ The Cutting Edge of Ordinary - recipe from my mom Mim
In a large bowl mix:
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons water
2 eggs
Mix together:
2 ½ cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
Add to the previous ingredients.
Mix to combine and stir in 2 cups sliced almonds. Roll into 2 logs about 10 inches long, and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate a minimum of 1 hour. (It’s really best to refrigerate the dough overnight).
Place on a cookie sheet and bake for approximately 20 minutes at 350. Feel them to see if they are too squishy, if they are put them back into the oven for 5-minute intervals. They should feel slightly hard. Make sure the cookies are completely cool before you cut them into slices.
