- 2 cups flour 2 tablespoons shortening
- 4 teaspoons baking powder 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon salt 2/3 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon sugar
Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar; rub in shortening with finger tips until mealy; add beaten egg and milk, and mix with a knife to a soft dough; roll out one-third of an inch thick, and cut with a round cutter; put a teaspoon of jam on each, moisten the edges with water, fold over, and press firmly together; make two cuts on top so that jam will show, brush with milk, and bake in hot oven fifteen minutes.
