Time: Altogether 20 to 25 minutes.

Sufficient for a nice-sized dish

  1. 2 eggs
  2. 3 oz. of butter
  3. 3 oz. of flour
  4. 3 oz. of pounded sugar
  5. pieced of bread or wood
  6. fruit preserves
  7. whipped cream
  • Well whisk the eggs
  • Put them into a basin
  • Stir to them the butter, which should be beaten to a cream
  • Add the flour and sifted sugar gradually, and then mix all well together
  • Butter a baking-sheet, and drop on it a teaspoonful of the mixture at a time, leaving a space between each
  • Bake in a cool oven
  • Watch the pieces of paste, and, when half done, roll them up like wafers, and put in a small wedge of bread or piece of wood, to keep them in shape
  • Return them to the oven until crisp
  • Before serving, remove the bread, put a spoonful of preserve in the widest end, and fill up with whipped cream

  • This is a very pretty and ornamental dish for the supper-table, and is very nice and very easily made.
