"Queen Elizabeth Ist"
To make Short Cakes
Take a Pint of Ale Yest, and a Pound and half of fresh Butter, melt your
Butter, and let it cool a little, then take as much fine Flour as you
think will serve, mingle it with the Butter and Yest, and as much
Rosewater and Sugar as you think fit, and if you please, some Caraway
Comfits, so bake it in little Cakes; they will last good half a year.
