DESCRIPTION: A recipe for rolled wafers

To make Wafers.

Take Rose-water or other water, the whites of two egs and beat them and your water, then put in flower, and make them thick as you would do butter for fritters, then season them with salt, and put in so much sugar as will make them sweet, and so cast them upon your irons being hot, and roule them up upon a little pin of wood; if they cleave to your irons, put in more sugar to your butter, for that will make them turn.
