Roll out thin a nice puff-paste, cut out with a glass or biscuit cutter, with a wine-glass or smaller cup cut out the centre of two out of three of these, lay the rings thus made on the third, and bake immediately; or shells may be made by lining patty-pans with paste. If the paste is light, the shell will be fine, and may be used for tarts or oyster patties. Filled with jelly and covered with meringue (tablespoon sugar to white of one egg), and browned in oven they are very nice to serve for tea.



Puff-paste, the white of an egg, pounded sugar. Mode.---Roll some good puff-paste out thin, and cut it into two and a half inch squares; brush each square over with the white of an egg, then fold down the corners, so that they all meet in the middle of each piece of paste, slightly press the two pieces together, brush them over with the egg, sift over sugar, and bake in a nice quick oven for about a quarter of an hour. When they are done, make a little hole in the middle of the paste, and fill it up with apricot jam, marmalade, or red-currant jelly. Pile them high in the centre of a dish, on a napkin, and garnish with the same preserve the tartlets are filled with.



Mix well together the juice and grated rind of two lemons, two cups of sugar, two eggs, and the crumbs of sponge cake; beat it all together until smooth; put into twelve patty-pans lined with puff-paste, and bake until the crust is done.

One cup raisins, 1 egg, 1 cup sugar, 1 cracker, juice and grated rind of 1 lemon. Chop raisins, add sugar, egg, slightly beaten, cracker, finely rolled, and lemon juice and rind. Roll puff paste into a long sheet, cover with mixture. Put on this another sheet of the paste, prick well and bake in a moderately hot oven till nicely browned. Cut into pieces 3 1/2 inches long by 2 inches wide. I vary this recipe by using peach and orange conserve, any kind of juice or well-seasoned mincemeat.
