- 1 pound chestnuts.
- 2 eggs.
- 2 teaspoons castor sugar.
- 2½ ounces butter.
Boil the chestnuts half an hour, strain, and after removing shells and skins, rub them through a wire sieve with a wooden spoon. Mix the sugar and two ounces of the butter to a cream, add the chestnuts, flour and eggs well beaten, and stir all well together. Take a tin greased with the remaining half ounce of butter, place the mixture in it in the shape of little hills, and bake in a moderate oven for twenty to thirty minutes; or the mixture may be spread over the tin in a thin layer, and when done stamped out into fancy shapes.
