Almond Icing
for Christmas Cake

The following recipe was transcribed ver batim from the following vintage magazine:

The House
The Journal of Arts & Crafts

England

December, 1901

2 lbs. ground almonds
1 lb. icing sugar
1 lb. castor sugar
4 eggs
1 glass brandy


METHOD - Pound the sugars and almonds well together, add the eggs one at a time, then the brandy, and work into a stiff paste; if the mixture is too moist add more icing sugar, but it is impossible to give an exact recipe. If no mortar is available the ingredients may be beaten in a large bowl with the rolling-pin.
