Veal Pot Pie_—­Wipe piece of veal from shoulder; and cut into pieces for serving; add 1/2 inch strip salt pork or bacon for each piece of veal, cover with cold water, put over fire and bring quickly to boiling point, then, after boiling five minutes, skim and let simmer until meat is tender.  When nearly tender, add salt and pepper to taste, and biscuit mixture cut into rounds.  Cook ten minutes without lifting cover.  Serve meat in center of platter, dumplings at ends and sauce, thickened, if needed, with flour and water, over whole.  Dumplings may be steamed 15 minutes over saucepan boiling water.  This is usually preferable, to avoid removing them from fire until instant of serving.  Beaten yolks of 2 eggs, diluted with 1/2 cup cream and added to sauce, gives a richer dish.

Biscuit mixture is made as follows:  Sift 1 quart good flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder and 1 teaspoon salt, putting it through sifter 2 or 3 times.  Rub into flour 1 large tablespoon Crisco and add sufficient sweet milk to make dough as soft as can be rolled and cut.  Roll about 3/4 inch thick, cut with round biscuit cutter.
