Baked Almond Pudding

The following recipe was transcribed ver batim from 

Peterson's Magazine

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

January, 1859

Boil the skins of 2 lemons very tender, and beat them very fine; beat half a pound of almonds in rose water, and add a pound of sugar, very fine; melt a half pound of butter and  let it stand till quite cold; beat the yolks of 8 eggs, and the whites of 4 eggs - mix them, and beat all together with a little orange water, and bake it in the oven.
