Flour, well sifted, 1 pint, Butter, 1 heaping teaspoon, Eggs, 2,

Salt, 1/2 teaspoon, Cream, or rich milk.

Rub the butter into the flour. When the flour feels like fine meal add the well-beaten eggs, and enough cream, or rich milk, to make a dough stiff enough to roll. Roll out as thin as paper, and cut into circles with a tin cutter, prick each biscuit with a fork, dust with flour and place them in a pan and bake to a light brown.
