Stir together, till of a light color, a pound of sugar, and half the

weight of butter--then add eight eggs, beaten to a froth, essence of

lemon, or rosewater, to the taste, and flour to make them sufficiently

stiff to roll out. Roll them out in powdered sugar, about half an inch

thick, cut it into strips about half an inch wide, and four inches long,

join the ends together, so as to form rings--lay them on flat tins that

have been buttered--bake them in a quick oven.
