Almond Pudding.

Tie closely in a muslin bag of a vanilla bean cut fine. Boil in 1 quart of rich cream until it is flavored; take the bag from cream, pour over pound of sponge or almond cakes sliced, thin; put in a pudding dish, cover the dish till cake is dissolved. Have ready 4 ounces sweet almonds, 2 ounces bitter almonds, that have been blanched and pounded to a paste, with enough rose water to keep them from oiling in the mortar.  Beat 8 eggs, light. When the cream and cake are cold, stir alternately with them the eggs, almonds and pound powdered sugar. Butter a deep dish, put in the mixture. Have ready a star cut from citron and several smaller ones to garnish the pudding. Set in a quick oven and bake. Cover, with paper if it gets too brown. Serve cold with whipped cream flavored with sherry wine.
