Maids of Honor


  • 1 cupful of sour milk
  • 1 cupful of sweet milk
  • 1 tablespoonful of melted butter
  • yolks of 4 eggs
  • juice and rind of 1 lemon
  • 1 small cupful of white pounded sugar


Put both kinds of milk together in a vessel, which is set in another and let it become sufficiently heated to set the curd, then strain off the milk, rub the curd through a strainer, add butter to the curd, the sugar, well-beaten eggs and lemon. Line the little pans with the richest of puff paste and fill with the mixture; bake until firm in the centre, from ten to fifteen minutes.
