48. Kid pie. And if by chance the kids are too fat to be roasted, you may cut them in pieces, and make them into pasteles or empanadas And you may take fine spice and chopped parsley and put them in the empanadas with a little sweet oil and take this food to the oven; and a little before you remove it from the oven, beat some eggs with verjuice or orange juice and put it in the empanada though the vent hole on the top of the empanada, and then return it to the oven for the space of three Paternosters. And then remove it, and put this pastel before the lord on a plate, and open it and give it to him.
