To make Common Biskets


Beat up six Eggs with a Spoonful of Rose-water, and a Spoonful of Sack; then add a Pound of fine powder’d Sugar, and a Pound of Flour; mix them into the Eggs by degrees, and an Ounce of Coriander-seeds, mix’d all together well, and shape them on white thin Paper, or Tin Moulds in any form you please. Beat the White of an Egg, and with a Feather rub them over, and dust fine Sugar over them. Set them in an Oven moderately heated, till they rise and come to a good Colour; take them out, and when you have done with the Oven, and if you have no Stove to dry them in, put them in the Oven again, and let them stand all Night to dry.
