Lady-fingers, Creamed butter, 1 cup,

Eggs, 8,

Sugar, 8 tablespoons,

Strong coffee, 8 tablespoons,

Almonds.

Stir slowly together; spread a layer half an inch thick of the mixture on a plate, then a layer of lady-fingers; and repeat until only enough cream is left to cover the top and the whole outside.

Stick in, on end, all over the outside, quartered almonds. Put on ice for 3 or 4 hours. This quantity is enough for 6 persons.
