1 saltspoonful salt. Cold water enough to make a stiff dough.
Roll out very thin, cut in squares, and bake quickly.
1 pint flour.
1 tablespoonful butter.
1 saltspoonful salt.
White of 1 egg.
Warm new milk enough to make a stiff dough.
Mix salt with the flour; rub in the butter; add the beaten white of egg, and milk enough to make a stiff dough. Beat half an hour with a rolling-pin, without ceasing. Break off a little piece of dough at a time, and roll it out as thin as paper. Cut into large rounds. Prick with a small wooden skewer, and bake quickly without burning.
Half a cup of sweet cream and one saltspoonful of salt. Stir in gluten enough to make a stiff dough. Knead and roll out very thin. Cut into rounds, and bake a delicate brown on an ungreased tin. Gluten is a preparation of wheat flour without the starch.
