From Aunt Gertie...

... a recipe entitled,


3 cups all purpose flour

1 cup fine sugar

1 Tsp salt

1 Tsp baking powder

1 1/2 Tsp nutmeg

1/2 lb. butter (or half lard half butter)

1 Cup currants

2 eggs

1 Tbsp milk

Sift dry ingredients together. Cut butter or butter and lard (as you do for a pie crust). Add currants (if hard, soften by soaking in water, dry thoroughly). Beat eggs slightly and stir in vigorously. Pour milk in around the sides of the bowl and mix. Chill dough for about 20 minutes. Roll dough out and cut with a cookie cutter. Fry on a lightly buttered griddle over medium heat. Turn and fry lightly about 3 to 5 minutes each side.

Enjoy!!! This really is better than fresh flies.

Hungry in the Bog,
