   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3                    eggs
      3/4  cup           sugar
    1      cup           cake flour -- sifted
    1      teaspoon      baking powder
    1      teaspoon      vanilla
    1      cup           freshly whipped cream -- sweet
 
 Beat eggs to a stiff froth in a large bowl. Add sugar and beat. Mix flour and
 baking powder and blend in. Add vanilla and beat for 2 minutes. Drop by
 spoonfulls on a greased cookie sheet 3 inches apart. Bake at 375-400 until
 done about 5 minutes. (Its my granny..it says moderately hot oven) I bake 'em
 at 375. Remove from oven and roll each cookie while hot, into a horn shape
 and place seam side down to cool.I find I need to secure with a toothpick at
 the tight end or base of the “flower”. When ready to serve fill the horn with
 whipped cream and add a sliver of candied orange peel in center to look like
 flower stamen. Makes 8 lillies.

 NOTES : This is an old recipe my grandmother always made at Easter. They are
 really good anytime though. My daughter likes “flower cookies” all year.
