Courtesy of Alice B Toklas

So I read old cookbooks. I love old cookbooks. And in reading the Alice B Toklas cookbook, I found these cookies. I have not tried making them, yet. They are on page 254.

Boil in a saucepan 1/2 cup and 2 tbsp butter, 4 cups water and a good pinch of salt. Moisten with some of the water 5 cups of rice flour. Gradually add it to the boiling water, stirring with a wooden spoon. Continue to stir until the mixture becomes stiff. Remove from heat and very slowly add 10 eggs one at a time. Incorporate each one thoroughly before adding another. Roll them into little sausages and place on buttered baking sheet in a moderate oven. When cold, paint with a water icing flavoured with rose water.
