2 c Flour
1 ts Salt
2 1/2 ts Double-acting baking powder
7 tb Butter
2 ts Sugar
3/4 c Milk
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Cut the butter into
small bits and stir them into the dry ingredients, using your finger
tips to make sure its well combined. (Note:I used a pastry
cutter.worked just as well as my fingers and lot less messy.)
Next,slowly add the milk to the=
mixture while stirring continually. Once the milk has been added,
knead the dough for one minute until smooth. Roll the dough out to
quarter inch thickness.
Cut into squares and place on a dry cookie sheet. Place the cookie
sheet on the middle shelf. Bake for 12 minutes and feel secure in
knowing that you have passed on a small piece of America's heritage
on to your children.
