Cream Lilies

4 Eggs
1 cp. Sugar
1 cp. Flour
1 tsp. Cream of Tartar
1/2 tsp. bi-carbonate of Soda

Method: Beat eggs and sugar to a thick froth. Sift in remaining ingredients, and mix well. Spoon onto buttered paper on an oven tray, a small tablespoon for each lily. Bake in moderate oven about 8 minutes. When cooked, roll quickly in the shape of a lily, and when cold fill with whipped cream, adding a spoonful of bright jelly on top. I always roll each lily straight from the oven, and I leave them there with the door open until each is rolled in its turn. They are easier to handle this way.

Thanks Jeanie - they sound tricky too. I think I'll get someone else to make them!
