Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tbs. sugar
  • 1 cup sifted flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 4 tbs. poppy seeds (optional)

Directions

Beat eggs until light, then beat in oil, sugar, flour and salt. Beat until very smooth. Stir in poppy seeds, if you desire. Drop by the teaspoon onto a greased baking sheet, leaving about 3 inches between each (they spread and puff while baking).
