Bath buns

Yield: 2 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Flour
3 tablespoons Shortening
3 teaspoons Baking powder
½ teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Sugar
½ Lemon rind, grated
¼ cup Sugar
1 Egg, well beaten
½ cup Seedless raisins
Citron
Milk

Sift flour, measure, and sift with baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening. Add grated lemon rind, sugar, egg, raisins, and enough milk to make a soft dough that can be molded. Pat into sheet 1 inch thick and cut into rounds, or mold small amounts into round buns.

Stick a bit of citron in the top of each. Reserve a little of the egg to brush over the top. Place on well-oiled baking sheet. Bake in hot oven (450ø F) 12-15 minutes. Brush top with 1 tablespoon sugar moistened with a little cream. Serve hot. 12 servings. Florence Taft Eaton, Concord, MA.
