Broil quickly or it will harden and dry out. When done pour the juice from

about a quarter of an inch thick. Then cut the squares into three cornered 
pieces and spread vvith melted butter. Commencing at the broad part, roll into 
crescent shapes. Let rise for an hour. Bake tv\'enty minutes in a quick oven. 

Pickled Peaches. 

Take tine large cling-stone peaches, place in boiling water a few moments, 
then in cold, when the skins will come oft" easily. To seven pounds of fruit 
take three pounds of sugar and one quart of vinegar. Boil the vinegar and 
sugar, into which have been placed little spice bags containing whole cloves, 
cinnaumn, allspice and mace. Pour it over the |>eaches. The next day pour it 
(vfF and boil aaain and |M)ur over the jwaches. Repeat this for seven days. Real.

Pineapple Sherbet. 
Grate two pineapples and mix with two quarts of water and a pint of

New Potatoes. 
Wash the potatoes clean, and then scrape (not peel) them. Have the 
water boiling, and let boil hard for about twenty minutes. Pour off the water, 
and serve them with butter, salt and pinch of pepper. This is much nicer than 
putting oil a cream dressing, when they are just new.

S'weet Sand'wiches. 

These sandwiches are made of "Bunds," which is made in the following 
manner: The ingredients, three cups of milk, three eggs, three tablespoons of 
sugar, three level tablespoons of butter, one teaspoon of salt and one cake of 
compi^ssed jeast. Scald the millc in a double boiler. Add the eggs well beaten, 
then the sugar and salt. Turn this into an earthen bowl. When lukpwann, 
add the jeast, which has been dissolved in lukewarm water. Add 
enough flour to make it the consistency of "poor batter." Beat fifteen minutes ; 
let it rise. When light, add enough more flour to make it thick enough to 
knead; knead from twenty to thirty minutes. Set it to rise in a well buttered 
bowl, also butter the top of the dough. When light this time knead in the but- 
ter and work it into loaves. Set to rise in bread pans for about an hour ; bake. 
Brush the top of the loaves with sweet milk. To make the sandwiches, cut 
bread in any desired shape and spread thinly wath butter, then with scraped 
banana. On this spread a layer of candied fruits. Cut the fruits, do not chop 
them, and lay on parafiie paper until ready to be used. In this way the fill- 
in can be prepared a week before the party if desired. If preferred, a filling of 
candied cherries and nuts can be used. 

Peach Ice with Whipped Cream. 

Take canned peaches, rub them through a seive, then add lemon juice iu 
the proportion of one lemon tO' a quart of fruit. Dissolve one teaspoon of gela- 
tine in warm water to one quart of fruit. Add a small quantity of red fniit- 
coloring paste, just enough to give a pink color to the ice. Make a syrup of sugar 
and water, add to the peaches and freeze. Sweeten the cream with powdered 
sugar, flavor; whip and pack in ice for four hours. It. should be only partly 
frozen. Serve the ice in sherbet cups with the whipped cream heaped on top.

French Cream Candies. 

MU8. NaTHA.N EMKRY COFFliN. 

Boil oue pound of granulated sugar and half a cupful of water until the 
syrup will make a soft ball when poured into cold water. Pour the syrup into 
a cold granite pan, set in a cool place ; as soon as it begins to cool stir rapidly 
until it is white and creamy. Sprinkle confectioners' sugar over the bread- 
board and knead until soft and creamy. This is fondant, the foundation of 
all cream candies.. If you wish to make colored candies, stir in the desired 
color, (using Burnette Color Pastes), just before removing from the fire. The 
flavoring you pour over the mixture and knead in. 

Have ready halved English walnuts, pecans, filberts, blanched almonds, 
chopped figs, seeded dates, candied cherries, pineapple and pears. 

For creamed dates, roll fondant, same size as date, put it into dates, press 
together and roll in granulated sugar. 

Creamed English walnuts, roll a piece rvf the fondant about the size of a 
quarter and press on one-half of a walnut. 

Creamed almonds, the same way, or roll the fondant about the whok^ 
almoaid. Filberts and pecans can also be treated in the same manner. 

Mould the chopped figs into a piece of fondant, ]>at it out square, care- 
fully roll, then with a sharp knife cut into half inch pieces. 

The candied fruits can be chopped fine and treated as above. The cherries 
can be pressed onto little pats of fondant about the size of a dime. 

Cream wafers can be made in all colors and flavors. Pat out about the 
size of a dollar ; color orange and flavor with orange ; color violet, flavor with 
violet; color green, flavor with ]>i^tachio; color red, flavor with rose; white, 
fla^'or with peppermint. 

To make chocolates, melt a cake of Huyler's sweetened chocolate in a 
saucepan, set into another pan containing boiling water. Make your fondant 
into cone shapes or any desired shape, putting nuts in if you wish, then into 
the chocolate, cover thoroughly, remove by sliding a silver fork under each 
piece; set them in a large pan with oiled paper on the bottom, and let stand 
until entirely dry (about twelve hours). With a sharp knife remove any 
superflous chocolate froiii the edges. Chocolate patties can be made by dipping 
any of the flavored patties, the peppermints are especially nice.

i^lways put all of your finished candies on oiled paper and let them dry 
thoroughly, then pack in tin boxes and they will keep fresh some time. It is 
best to let the centers for the chocolates dry over night and dip them the next 
moiiiing.

Miss Nkttik A. Wyman. 
Chocolate Fudges. 

Take two cups of sugar, brown or white; two squares of chocolate, one cup 
of milk, one tablespoon of butter, one tablespoon of vanilla. Boil until it forms 
into a ball in cold water, stirring all the time. Then beat until it begins to 
thicken. Pour into well bi\ttered pans and cut into small squares before it 
hardens. 

orown Sugar Fudges. 

For brown fudges, use same receipt as above, omitting chocolate. Beat for 
a few moments when taken from the fire, then put in a cup of nuts cut rather 
fine and beat until thick enough to pour into pan. 

Candied Fresh Currants. 

Select clusters of very large currants, and dip these in and out of white 
syrup, which is cooked enough to sugar. Hang on a buttered string to harden. 
These are very pretty served as a bonbon for lunelioons.
