A quick tea time treat. Serve warm, buttered, and with jam or honey.


2 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup milk


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.

2. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut shortening in until mixture has a fine crumb texture. Stir in milk with a fork to make a soft dough. Knead 8 to 10 times, and then roll out to a thickness of at least 1/2 inch. Cut into rounds with a cookie or biscuit cutter. Place on cookie sheet, and allow to rest for a few minutes.

3. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Serve warm.
