Birthday Girdle Scones

Birthday Girdle Scones

1/4 teaspoon baking soda
10 tablespoons butter
1/8 cup milk
2 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt

Sift together flour and salt in a bowl. Heat the milk and dissolve in it the butter and soda. When cool, gradually add the liquid to the flour, stirring the mixture thoroughly to make a stiff dough.
Roll out the dough into 1/4 inch thick and cut into rounds with a 2 1/2 - 3 inch cutter. Bake on hot greased griddle, browning the scones delicately, first on one side, then on the other. If you have no griddle use a large, old-fashioned frying pan. Split, butter well, and serve very hot for tea. Yield- 15
