Tea Biscuits Made With Baking Powder


  • 4 cupfuls of sifted flour
  • 3 teaspoonfuls of baking-powder
  • 1 teaspoonful of salt
  • 1 tablespoonful of butter


Add the salt and baking-powder to the flour and sift them. Rub in the butter well. With a fork stir in lightly and quickly sufficient milk to make a soft dough. The dough must be only just stiff enough to roll. Flour the board well, turn the dough onto it, and lightly roll it to a half inch thickness. Cut it into small circles, brush the tops with milk, and bake in a quick oven for twenty to thirty minutes.
