Take one pound of loaf sugar, finely beaten and sifted; then take eight

eggs, whites and all; beat them in a wooden bowl for an hour; then take

a quarter of a pound of blanched almonds, beat them very small with some

rose-water; put them into the bowl, and beat them for an hour longer;

then shake in five ounces of fine flour and a spoonful of coriander

seed, and one of caraways. Beat them half an hour; butter your plates,

and bake them.
