I grew up in Scandinavian community and enjoyed many Swedish treats as a child. This is one recipe I've kept through the years, and it's become a favorite snack for my nieces and nephews. It is crunchy yet not too sweet...a delicious treat to take along on any outing!

  • 1. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs. Add sugar and oil; mix well. Combine flour, almonds, baking powder and salt. Gradually beat into the sugar mixture. Chill the dough until firm. Divide into three pieces. Roll each piece into a 8-in. x 2-in. rectangle; place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until firm to the touch.
