Almond Cheesecakes

  • 1/2 lb Jordan almonds
  • Rose water
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 lb white sugar
  • Powdered mace
  • 10 ounces butter
  • Lemon peel, grated
  • Paste
Soak the almonds in cold water all night. The next morning, blanch them in cold water and then lay on a clean cloth to dry. Beat them fine in a marble mortar with a little rose water.

Beat and strain the egg yolks and whites. Add sugar and a little powdered mace. Rub all well together in the mortar.

Melt the butter. Add a grated lemon peel. Mix with the rest of the ingredients.

Fill the pans after putting a paste at the bottom. Small tin shapes are best for cheesecakes.

Are you the next Rascal? We sure hope so. When you become a Rascal, you will join a group of excellent cooks. Cooks who go above and beyond, and look deep within themselves to redefine the boundaries of culinary success. Well that's a bit dramatic - our Rascals don't really do that. But they do have fun, share recipes, and enjoy excellent tools for organizing and printing recipes. So, we think it makes a lot of sense to join the Rascal. And we think it would be really poetic if you become the next Rascal. We hope you think the same thing!
