This you must have a cutter for, which you can buy a set of in a box of any respectable tinman; make a good EufF-paste, roll it out half an inch thick, then take the irgest cutter and cut four pieces of paste, lay them on a tin sheet to bake, mark three of them in the middle with the third size cutter, leave one plain, brush one of the three over with egg, cut a lid with the fourth size cutter, the same thickness, brush it over with egg, and ornament with leaves of paste to fancy; bake them all in a quick oven; when done, take out the centre of the three pieces, and build them up on the plain piece, leaving the one you egged for the top.

Take five or six French rolls, let them be nicely rasped, iiut them into a stewpan, with some good dripping or ard, let them fry a fine light brown, make a hole in the top of each, and take out all the crumb; scald and beard three dozen of large oysters, cut each oyster in two, strain the liquor to the oysters, adding a little pounded mace and cayenne pepper; give them a boil up, thicken with butter rolled in flour, and add a ieacupful of cream, then fill the rolls, and put the piece of crust you took off on again. Serve them up on a napkin. Garnish with parsley. MUSHROOM LOA...
