Beat fine a quarter of a pound of sweet almonds with some orange flour water, grate the rind of a lemon into the almonds, and sqeeze in the juice of the lemon. Mix all of the above ingredients together, keep beating the mixture till your oven is ready, and just before you set it in, add to it three-quarters of a pound of warm dry flour.
