This entry is a re-creation of a recipe from The Prince of Transylvania's Court Cookbook (Hungary, 16th c.), entitled "Baby Shaped Pogacha". [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:

Baby shaped pogacha. Grab one eighth of a pound almonds and a quarter sugar, peel and crush the almonds, add some rose water and sugar, it will be thinner this way; mix it together, flatten some dough, but don't add too much rose water. Take out the dough from the mortar, put it into a plate, add some nutmeg flower; take some wafers, cut it a bit, paste the almond dough onto it. Then grab some egg whites, add some good rose water, mix it together. Paste the wafer with this, then wash it a bit and put it into a preheated furnace, be careful, they might get stuck together; once it bends where you pasted the rose water and it is hard and white, take it out.
