Method

Take half a Pound of Almonds blanched, and beat fine, with a little Rose or Orange-flower Water, then take a Quart of sweet thick Cream, and boil it with a Piece of Cinnamon and Mace, sweeten it with Sugar to your Palate, and mix it with your Almonds; stir it well together, and strain it through a Sieve. Let your Cream cool, and thicken it with the Yolks of Six Eggs; then Garnish a deep Dish, and lay Paste at the Bottom; then put in shread Artichoke-bottoms, being first boiled; upon that a little melted Butter, shread Citron, and candied Orange; so do till your Dish is near full, then pour in your Cream: So bake it without a Lid; when it is baked, scrape Sugar over it, and serve it up hot; half an Hour will bake it.
