Cookies Desserts

Ingredients:

  • 3 Eggs
  • 3/4 c Sugar
  • 1 c Cake flour; sifted
  • 1 ts Baking powder
  • 1 ts Vanilla
  • 1 c Freshly whipped cream; sweet

Directions:

Beat eggs to a stiff froth in a large bowl. Add sugar and beat. Mix flour and baking powder and blend in. Add vanilla and beat for 2 minutes. Drop by spoonfulls on a greased cookie sheet 3 inches apart. Bake at 375-400 until done about 5 minutes. (Its my granny..it says moderately hot oven) I bake 'em at 375. Remove from oven and roll each cookie while hot, into a horn shape and place seam side down to cool.I find I need to secure with a toothpick at the tight end or base of the "flower". When ready to serve fill the horn with whipped cream and add a sliver of candied orange peel in center to look like flower stamen. Makes 8 lillies.
 
NOTES : This is an old recipe my grandmother always made at Easter. They are really good anytime though. My daughter likes "flower cookies" all year. Recipe by: Grandma Hunter-Lisa Lepsy Posted to MC-Recipe Digest V1 #736 by Babygoil@aol.com on Aug 11, 1997
