From 1915:

My mother taught both her daughters, Dorothy and myself, many useful little first aids to home-keeping which often are useful at opportune times, though neither of us make a business of keeping house.
The fact that one does something oneself toward the preparation of a meal adds interest and pleasure, I think. One of my favorite recipes is for CHEESE FINGERS. The ingredients include:
3 oz. grated cheese,
3 oz. flour,
½ teaspoonful of baking powder,
salt and cayenne to taste.
Mix these ingredients to a stiff paste with the aid of a little milk. Roll round and bake on a tin in a brisk oven for five minutes till they are very light brown. This makes a pretty dish for the table. The best of the recipe is that you can use bits of dry cheese in it.
