Mix flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and nuts in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, beat eggs, vanilla, almond extract and zert about 1 minute. Add to flour mixture. Cut dough in half. On a greased and floured baking sheet, pat dough into two logs, ½" thick x 1-½" wide and 12" long. Place logs 2" apart. Bake in a preheated 300F over for 50 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. With a serrated knife, cut loaves at 45 degree angle, ½" thick (16-10 pieces). Lay slices flat on a baking sheet. Cook at 275F for 20-25 minutes, turning once. Store in an airtight container. (from my mother-in-law, Eleanor Kellner) REC.FOOD.RECIPES ARCHIVES
