table-spoonsful of semolina flour, a boiled potato and salt to

Other Recipes


Allow one egg to each person. Have everything in readiness. The
maraschino cherries must be drained free from the liquor. Separate the
eggs. Beat the whites until they are stiff. Add a level tablespoonful
of powdered sugar to each white, and beat until dry and glossy. Add
the yolks of three eggs. Mix quickly. Add the grated rind of one lemon
and a tablespoonful of lemon juice. Heap this into individual dishes.
Make a tiny little hole in the center and put in a maraschino cherry,
leaving the hole large enough to hold a tablespoonful of the liquor
when the omelet is ready to serve; dust it with powdered sugar, bake
in a quick oven about three minutes, take it from the oven, pour in
the maraschino juice and send _at once_ to the table. These will fall
if baked too much, but when well made and served quickly, is one of
the daintiest of desserts.
