11/2 teaspoons salt 1/2 tablespoon butter
13/4 teaspoons soda 1 cup sugar
13/4 teaspoons cream of tartar 1 cup sour milk 1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg 1 egg
Put flour in shallow pan; add salt, soda, cream of tartar, and spices. Work in butter with tips of fingers; add sugar, egg well beaten, and sour milk. Stir thoroughly, and toss on board thickly dredged with flour; knead slightly, using more flour if necessary. Pat and roll out to one-fourth inch thickness; shape, fry, and drain.
