Almond Puffs

Take one pound of fine sugar, and put water to it to make a wet candy:

boil it till pretty thick; then put in a pound of beaten almonds, and

mix them together, still keeping it stirred over a slow fire, but it

must not boil, till it is as dry as paste. Then beat it a little in a

mortar; put in the peel of a lemon grated, and a pound of sifted sugar;

rub them well together, and wet this with the froth of whites of eggs.
