Pyramid Paste

(Desserts.) - (A Poetical Cook-book)

You that from pliant _paste_ would fabrics raise,

Expecting thence to gain immortal praise,

Your knuckles try, and let your sinews know

Their power to knead, and give the form to dough;

From thence of course the figure will arise,

And elegance adorn the surface of your pies.


Make a rich puff paste, roll it out a quarter of an inch thick, cut it

into five or seven pieces with scalloped tin cutters, which go one

within another; leave the bottom and top piece entire, and cut a bit out

of the centre of the others. Place them upon buttered baking tins, and

bake them of a light brown. Build them into a pyramid, laying a

different preserved fruit upon each piece of paste, and on the top a

whole apricot with a sprig of myrtle stuck in it.
