2 cups flour 3 teaspoons Dr. Price’s Baking Powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons sugar 2 teaspoons shortening 2/3 cup milk 1 cup chopped figs 1 egg

Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar; add shortening and rub in very lightly; add slowly enough milk to form stiff dough.  Roll out 1/4 inch thick on floured board, handling as little as possible; cut into squares and on each piece put one tablespoon of fig; brush edges of dough with cold milk; fold like envelope and press edges together; brush tops with egg beaten with one tablespoon milk and one teaspoon sugar.  Bake about 20 minutes in hot oven.

Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar; add milk, well-beaten eggs and melted shortening; mix well.  Bake in greased shallow pan in moderate oven about 25 minutes.

GRIDDLE CAKES AND WAFFLES

Eggs add to the richness of griddle cakes, but are not essential.  The batter must be thin and the cake not too large when baked.  An iron frying pan may be used instead of griddle.  In any case grease only enough to keep the cakes from sticking and have very hot before baking.  Cakes should be turned only once.
