stir them over the fire till they are stiff. Keep them stirred till

cold; then beat them in a mortar for a quarter of an hour. Add a pound

of sugar, and make it into a paste, with the whites of three eggs beaten

to a froth, more or less, as you may judge necessary. Bake the puffs in

a cool oven.

Put a quarter of a pound of fresh butter, and a tea-cup full of cold
water into a saucepan, when the butter is melted, stir in, while on
the fire, four table spoonsful of flour; when thoroughly mixed, put
it in a dish to cool, and then add four well beaten eggs; butter some
cups, half fill them with the batter, bake in a quick oven and serve
with clarified sugar.

Other Recipes


Put one cup of water and one-quarter pound of butter on to boil. When it
begins to boil stir in one-quarter pound of sifted flour. Stir until it
leaves the kettle clean, take off the fire and stir until milk-warm,

kettle. When the butter is hot, dip a large teaspoon in cold water and
cut pieces of dough with it as large as a walnut, and drop into the hot
butter. Try one first to see whether the butter is hot enough. Do not

with a spoon, fry a deep yellow and sprinkle powdered sugar over them.

stir to a thin paste, and after this cools add three eggs unbeaten, and
stir vigorously for five minutes. Drop in tablespoonfuls on a buttered
tin and bake in a quick oven twenty-five minutes, opening the oven door

not touch each other in the pan. This amount will make twelve puffs.
Cream for puffs: one cup of milk, one cup of sugar, one egg, three
tablespoons of flour, vanilla to flavor. Stir the flour in a little of
the milk; boil the rest, turn this in and stir until the whole thickens.
When both this and the puffs are cool open the puff a little way with a
sharp knife and fill them with the cream.
