Milk Biscuits

simple, easily made

Here is a recipe for some simple, easily made biscuits that are useful for either lunch or tea, and are generally acceptable for the nursery, especially when spread with a little jam. Take half a pound of flour, one teacupful of baking powder, a pinch of salt, a gill of milk, and an ounce of margarine. Dry and sieve the flour; rub the baking powder and salt through a sieve also. Put the margarine and milk into a pan, and make them just warm enough to melt the former. Then pour into the flour, and mix well together. Knead the mixture until it becomes smooth, then roll out and cut into rounds. Prick with a fork and put on to a greased tin into a moderately hot oven. Bake for about twenty minutes until pale brown and crisp.
