Old Fashioned Shortcake from an 1891 recipe book entitled “Palatable Dishes.”

Chuckwagon: Old Fashioned ShortcakeFor Old Fashioned Shortcake take one quart of nice buttermilk, add to it one teaspoonful of soda, quarter of a teaspoonful of salt, one tablespoonful of unmelted lard, then stir in enough sifted flour to make as soft a dough as can be handled. Roll out to about half an inch thick, cut into diamonds and bake quickly.
