From 1915:

Make a rich biscuit dough of 1 cup of flour, 1 even teaspoon of salt, 1 heaping teaspoon of lard and 2 heaping teaspoons of baking powder. Mix these all together with a knife, then make a well in center and add ½ cup of milk. Fold all together and turn out on board, cut in biscuit shape and bake in fast oven. Wash and stem berries, add a cup of sugar to each 2 cups of fruit, mash slightly and allow to stand 2 hours. Have biscuits warm, split open, butter and add a little sugar, add a few whole berries, put on top and add more of the mashed berries, tip the top with a little whipped cream and serve.
