Traditional Shrewsbury Biscuits
This recipe is over a hundred years old!
I followed the recipe as closely as I could, except for reducing the sugar content just a little.
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup milk
2 tsp of lime juice and 1/2 tsp lemon rinds
Cream the butter or margarine with sugar and beat in the egg.
Mix flour with 2 tsp of lime juice and 1/2 tsp lemon rinds. Mix to a stiff consistency, using milk if required.
Roll out fairly thinly and cut out with a 2½-inch cutter.
Place on a greased baking sheet and bake at 350 °F till light fawn colour.
