Recipe: Peach Roll

Place in a mixing bowl

  • Two cups of flour,
  • One teaspoon of salt,
  • Four teaspoons of baking powder,
  • Three tablespoons of sugar.

Sift to mix and then rub in five tablespoons of shortening, and mix to a dough with two-thirds of a cup of ice-cold water. Roll out on a well-floured pastry board one-quarter inch thick. Now cover with the prepared peaches and then sift over

  • One-half cup of sugar,
  • One-half teaspoon of cinnamon.

Roll as for jelly roll, tucking the ends in securely. Place in a well-greased and floured pan and bake in a moderate oven for forty-five minutes. Baste every ten minutes with

  • One-half cup of syrup,
  • Five tablespoons of water,
  • One-quarter teaspoon of nutmeg.

Stir to thoroughly mix before basting the roll. Remove the roll to a large platter when baked and serve cold, with crushed and sweetened peaches in place of a Sauce.
To prepare the peaches for the roll select the fully ripe peaches and cut into thin slices; if they are clinging stones, cut into small Pieces.
