- Mix into a paste with the yolk of an egg.
- Roll out to the thickness of a silver quarter, about four or five inches long; cut into strips about a third of an inch wide, twist
- them as you would a paper spill, and lay them on a baking-sheet slightly floured.
- Bake in a moderate oven until crisp, but they must not be the least brown.

- Cooking time is an estimate, watch carefully.
