Mix flour, sugar and butter, add eggs and water, put in a cool place to harden, then roll out the dough.
Filling: One pound almonds, blanched and dried the day before, then grated. One pound powdered sugar, juice of two lemons. Place on fire until it cooks (or is very hot); then stir a short time, add the whites of eight eggs beaten stiff. Line a spring form with the dough, put in the mixture, place strips of dough over the top and bake in a very slow oven one hour. Dust with powdered sugar and candied cherries to decorate.
