  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups flour

Beat eggs until fluffy, add sugar gradually. Add water, vanilla, then dry ingredients.

Bake in sheet pan. When cool, cut into squares and spread with the following.

  • 1 lb. Powdered sugar
  • 1 stick oleo (margarine)

This won't be very thick. Ice squares one at a time and roll in crushed or ground peanuts. It is helpful if you have a helper to do this!

Bake at 350 degrees, for about 20 minutes. You want them lightly browned. Too done, make a dry roll, too light makes them hard to ice.
