                         SAWYER   (RJHV41A)
    3      cups          Sifted flour
    1      cup           Shortening
    4      tablespoons   Corn syrup; or molasses -- honey
    1                    Egg -- beaten
    3      tablespoons   Almond extract
    1 1/2  teaspoons     Baking soda
    1      cup           Blanched almonds
 
 Here’s an easy recipe that will make about four dozen cookies. They may be
 wrapped in foil and frozen, if you wish...
 
  Cream the shortening and sugar together and add the beaten egg. Slowly add
 the flour, baking soda, almond extract, and syrup to the mixture and mix
 until smooth.
 
  Take a small piece of the dough and roll into a ball.
 Continue until all the dough has been used.  Flatten each ball into a thick
 cookie and place an almond on the top of each, pressing it in a little.
 
  Bake on a greased cookie sheet in a 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes.
 
  This would be a good recipe for the member who asked about cooking a
 Chinese Dinner for eight since the cookies can be made several days ahead.
 ENJOY!
