sherry. Leave for twenty-four hours to soak in the refrigerator.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream butter and sugar until light and
fluffy. Add eggs and about 2 T of flour and beat. Fold in rest of flour.
Bake in 7-inch square tin for 25-30 mins until brown. Let cool. Slice into

point.

Pour one large glass of sherry. Mix eggs and add all ingredients to small
