A delicious vintage recipe, modified from the book The Silent Hostess Treasure Book, written in 1932.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix and sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
Cut in the butter with a pastry blender, two knives, or use your fingers to break in to tiny bits.
Crack an egg into a bowl and reserve a bit of the egg white. Beat the egg well with a fork and add to the flour mixture.
Add the milk.
Roll out or flatten into a disk with your hands. Cut into triangles or circles, as you prefer. Add to greased pan or one covered with a baking mat.
Brush with egg white and dust granulated sugar on the tops.
Bake in hot oven for twelve to fifteen minutes.
