(Store these cookies in a tightly covered tin; Mom and Grandma kept
1/2 an apple with them for moisture. I dislike musty apple flavor so
keep a paper towel dampened with brandy or vanilla in the tin in an
open plastic bag. The matured cookies have a delicious chewy, waxy
texture. We always made the Vanilla Sticks with unblanched almonds. As
with any meringue, add the sugar gradually and beat very well AFTER
the sugar.) Beat 4 egg whites stiff, add 1 lb powdered sugar. Beat 15
minutes by hand or 5 minutes in electric mixer. Set aside some (about
1/4) for icing; add 1 lb. grated almonds, vanilla to flavor, to rest.
Roll out, cut in strips, glaze with icing; bake in moderate oven.
