XXVIII To make schinchinelli. If you want to make schinchinelli, take the almonds that are well cleaned and put them in a mortar and grind them well and put in a little sugar in a good manner and rose water decently, and then enclose them with the dough of which the crust is made, as small as they can be made, and put them in to bake whole, and when they are cooked throw rose water on them, and if this does not seem good to the lord, give it to the family.
