This entry is a re-creation of a recipe from Een notabel boecxken van cokeryen (Netherlands, ca. 1510 - C. van Tets, trans.), entitled "To Make Roffioelen from Apples and Nuts". [insert a brief description of dish here, possibly including any or all of the following: characteristics of the final dish, when or how it might have been served, and why you selected it]

The Source Recipe
The original text of the recipe is as follows:

To make roffioelen from apples and nuts together. Take apples and nuts; break them or grind them well together. Then take grains of paradise or ginger, cinnamon, and potsugar; mix this together very well. Then make dough as stands written before this. And make from it a round disc like a plate. Then fill the half of the round disc with the aforesaid dish [i.e. the apple and nut mixture]. Then cover it with the other half of the same round disc. And so one fries them in the oil until they are enough. When they are enough then one takes them out and one serves them with the pancakes at the end [of the meal] when one has eaten.
