One quart of scalded milk, when lukewarm, add the following: 1/2 cup
of butter and lard (mixed), 1 egg, 1 tablespoonful of sugar, 1
teaspoonful of salt and 1 Fleischman's yeast cake; add flour to form a
thick batter; beat all thoroughly. Mix the above at 9.30 P.M., stand
in a warm place, closely-covered, over night. The following morning
add more flour; dough should not be mixed quite as stiff as for bread.
Allow it to raise in a warm place. When well-risen, place on bread
board, roll, cut into small biscuits; dip each biscuit in melted
butter, fold together, place in pans a distance apart, and when they
have doubled in size, bake in a hot oven.
