meal. Rub the butter into the dry
ingredients. Beat the egg, add the
milk, and add this mixture to the
dry ingredients. Add more milk if
necessary to make a soft dough. Roll
out on a, floured board, handling
lightly. Cut with a round biscuit cut
ter, fold like Parker House rolls and
bake in a quick oven.
Soft Corn Bread
Two-third cup rice, y2 cup white'
corn meal, 3 cups milk or milk and
water mixed, 2 or 3 eggs, 2 table
spoons butter, 1 teaspoon salt
