Sweet Boiled Patties (Good)

boiled 10 to 12 minutes.


  • Flour, 8 oz.
  • suet, 3 oz.
  • little salt
  • divided into fourteen portions


Mix into a very smooth paste, three ounces of finely-minced suet with eight of flour, and a light pinch of salt; divide it into fourteen balls of equal size, roll them out quite thin and round, moisten the edges, put a little preserve into each, close the patties very securely to prevent its escape, throw them into a pan of boiling water, and in from ten to twelve minutes lift them out, and serve them instantly. Butter-crust may be used for them instead of suet but it will not be so light.
