This recipe is actually 3 in 1. The base for this is a Basic English Egg Dough and then 2 variations of the recipes These are really quite nice, they are like a sweet bisquit. I got this recipe when I was helping my daughter a school project. The original recipe dates back to the 17th century. It was almost impossible to read (I'm not sure if that was they way they wrote back then or a literacy issue) Anyway this a modernized version. It was really kind of fun since I enjoyed the recipe I kept it.
