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.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter or margarine

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 egg

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1/3 cup milk

2 tsp of lime juice and 1/2 tsp lemon rinds

Method:

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.
