    ThatCaptJim's Note:

    This recipe was given out in the 1930s - My mother in law received it from her mother who got it on a recipe card that was a premium when she signed up for her first life insurance policy! It is a pretty standard biscuit recipe, but I'm retaining it for it's vintage value.
