23 - To make dry Ginger-bread. Take half a pound of Almonds, and as much grated cake, and a pound of fine sugar, and the yolks of two new laid egges, the juice of a lemmon, and two grains of musk: beat all these together til they come to a paste: then print it with your moulds: and so dry it upon papers in an oven, after your bread is drawn.
