1 cup sugar

cup butter and lard legg

Few gratings of nutmeg

cup milk

Flour to make dough

1 teaspoon baking powder

Sand Tarts

Make jumbles, cutting them into squares. Brush the top with egg and sprinkle with granulated sugar.

Peanut Cakes

Whites of 5 eggs 1 tablespoon flour

1 cup sugar Ground peanuts

Beat the eggs as stiff as possible; add the sugar and flour; then stir in enough peanuts to make a very stiff batter. Drop in small lumps on buttered tins and bake in a quick oven.

Fruit Jumbles

1 cup butter

1 cup sugar

2 tablespoons lemon juice.

Grated nutmeg

3 eggs

10 ounces flour

1/2 pound seeded raisins or currants

Stir the butter and sugar to a cream; add the lemon and a little grated nutmeg; then the eggs beaten separately, then the flour, leaving out a tablespoonful to mix with the fruit. Have the fruit well washed and drained; mix with the flour and add to the batter. Drop on buttered tins and bake.


Whites of 3 eggs 1 cup powdered sugar

teaspoon vanilla

Beat the eggs to a stiff froth; stir in the powdered sugar lightly with a wooden spoon. When thoroughly mixed flavor and arrange the meringue on buttered paper in the shape of eggs; sift powdered sugar thickly over the top; let them stand a few minutes; shake off the superfluous sugar; lay the paper on tins and bake in a very slow oven until a delicate brown. When cool, remove carefully from the paper; dip a spoon in hot water; scoop out the inside; dust with powdered sugar and set away until serving time. Fill with ice cream or whipped cream and press together, leaving some of the cream visible.


Follow the recipe for meringues, arranging in smaller mounds; when done do not remove the inside but press two pieces together, dipping the flat sides lightly in white of egg to make them stick.
