  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 52 servings
  
       2    Eggs
     2/3 c  Sugar
     1/2 c  Canola oil
     1/4 c  Orange juice
       1 ts Vanilla
       3 c  Flour
   1 1/2 ts Baking powder
     1/4 ts Salt; optional
       1    Egg white; beaten with
       1 ts Water
            Candied cherries
       1    Almonds
  
      Heat oven to 350. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs (or egg
   substitute) until fluffy and lemon-colored. Continue beating, adding the
   sugar, oil, and then the orange juice. Stir in the vanilla.
      In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt (if used).
   Mix well. Add this to the beaten egg mixture. Stir thoroughly. Spray a
   cookie sheet with vegetable oil spray. Divide the dough into 4 parts. Shape
   one into a log, about 13 long and 1 wide. Divide into 13 pieces.
      Roll each piece into a 7 rope. Lay each rope on the cookie sheet,
   forming it into a closed circle, a bracelet-shaped cookie. Cover the
   junction with a candied cherry or a whole almond that has been dipped into
   the beaten egg-white mixture. Repeat with the remaining pieces of dough.
   Bake 15 minutes. Do not brown. Cool on racks, then store in an air-tight
   container. May be frozen. Makes
        52    cookies.
