Fruit Rolls


Make a biscuit mixture, using 4 tablespoonfuls of fat instead of 2 tablespoonfuls, as given in the recipe for Baking Powder Biscuits. Gently roll to 1/4 inch thickness, and spread the following ingredients over it:

  • 1 tablespoonful butter or substitute
  • 2 tablespoonfuls sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoonful cinnamon
  • fruit

For the fruit use:

  • 1/2 cupful dried currants, or 1/3 cupful raisins and 2 tablespoonfuls citron, or 2 cupfuls chopped apples

Roll as jelly roll, then cut into pieces 3/4 inch thick and place (cut side down) on buttered tins. Bake in a hot oven (450 degrees F.) 15 to 30 minutes. If apples are used, serve the roll with cream and sugar as a dessert. If the dried fruits are used, serve the roll in place of a hot bread or cake.
