  • 1 pound of powdered sugar
  • 1 pound of butter
  • 1/2 pound of wheat-flour
  • 1/2 pound of Indian meal
  • 1 large lemon
  • spice


Take the powdered sugar, butter, wheat-flour, and Indian meal; mix all together, and add the juice and grated peel of the lemon, with spice to your taste. Make it into a lump of paste. Then put it into a mortar, and beat it hard on all sides.

Roll it out thin, and cut it into cakes with the edge of a tumbler, or with a tin cutter.

Flour a shallow tin pan. Lay the cakes into it, but not close together. Bake them about ten minutes. Grate sugar over them when done.
