LEKACH


This recipe is one that is used in Palestine. It makes a honey cake not
nearly as rich as those in the foregoing recipes for honey cakes, but
will very nicely take the place of a sweet cracker to serve with tea.
Take three cups of sifted flour, one-quarter teaspoon of salt, add three
eggs, one teaspoon of allspice, one teaspoon of soda, the grated rind
and juice of one-half lemon and three tablespoons of honey, mix all
ingredients well. Roll on board to one-fourth inch in thickness and cut
with form. Brush with white of egg or honey diluted with water. On each
cake put an almond or walnut. Bake in moderate oven from fifteen to
twenty minutes.
