Bessie’s Walnut Cookies

8 eggs
2 cups sugar
2 cups oil
8 cups flour
3 Tbsp. baking powder
3 cups chopped walnuts
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract (sometimes she used ½ tsp vanilla and ½ tsp. almond)

In a bowl, mix together the eggs, oil and sugar. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour and baking powder. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture. Add in the nuts and extract. Stir until well combined. Then divide the dough to form three logs. Bake each log on a greased baking sheet at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Once cooled slightly, slice them about an inch thick into cookies.
