Lemon Drop Cakes

Served at the Harrington ball. It was at here that Melissa met Ed Calkins, Steward of Tara, for the very first time.
From Miss Beecher’s domestic receiptbook: designed as a supplement to her Treatise on domestic economy.

Lemon Drop Cakes

3 heaping tablespoonfuls of sifted white sugar
1 tablespoon sifted flour
3 lemons, grated rinds only
1 egg white, well-beaten

Mix ingredients together. Drop on buttered paper and bake in a moderate oven.
