Baked Cream Potatoes

Cut raw potatoes in very thin slices and put a layer of them in a

buttered earthen dish. Cover the layer with pieces of butter, and season

well with pepper and salt. Then put another layer and season in same

manner, so proceeding till the dish is full. Over all pour a pint of

cream or rich milk, and set in the oven to bake a half hour. This is a

very nice lunch dish.
