|Eggs||1⁄2 Pound (5 Eggs)|

Beat eggs and sugar together until light and foamy.
Sprinkle flour over egg mixture, very lightly using hand to sprinkle.
Add vanilla to taste.
I repeat, the secret is to mix the batter lightly and quickly and get them into oven as quickly as possible.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Drop cakes on a greased baking sheet by squeezing through a pastry tube.
Shape with tube into little finger-sized cakes, leaving plenty of space between them.
Bake at 350 degrees for 7 minutes, or until light brown.
Let cool on sheet.
Sprinkle with sugar if desired.
Add mixture of brown sugar, butter, and a little cinnamon.
Roll as for a jelly roll, slice and turn flat like coach wheels and bake in moderate oven until brown.
Hill of Burlington cuts the dough in small squares, places a dab of spiced sugar-butter mixture in center along with a raisin and pinches the four corners up like a "hobo" bundle.
These are baked in a slow oven until brown.
Still another way is to fold thin biscuit dough into little crescent forms like old-fashioned fruit pies with white sugar, butter, and vanilla filling.
Bake as desired.
In any form the "Sticky" is a treat for children grownups too.
