Cheesecake. No. 3


  • 2 quarts of milk
  • runnet
  • 1/4 pound of butter
  • 1 ounce of almonds blanched
  • 2 Naples biscuits
  • crumb of roll
  • 7 eggs
  • mace
  • rose-water

Take the milk, make it into curd with a little runnet; when it is drained as dry as possible, put to it the butter; rub both together in a marble mortar till smooth; then add the almonds; beat the Naples biscuits, and about as much crumb of roll; put seven yolks of eggs, but only one white; season it with mace and a little rose-water, and sweeten to your taste.
