Sweet Treats for the Children — Scone Tart…
is very economical for it contains no fat at all.
1 lb. sugar
1 heaped dessertspoonful of sugar [1 dessertspoonful equals 2.4 teaspoons]
1 gill (or a little more) of sour milk [1 gill equals 1/2 cup]
1 heaped dessertspoonful of baking powder
Jam, marmalade, or lemon curd for filling.
Sift together the sugar, flour and baking powder. Mix in the milk quickly with the blade of a knife, making a rather soft paste. Roll this out lightly and quickly once to the thickness of 1 to 1 1/2 inches. Cut into a large circle. Put on to a floured tin, and bake in a very quick oven till lightly browned. Split open, and while still hot, spread with jam, marmalade, or any other sweet thing that you like. (Not syrup, for it soaks in and vanishes away.) Press the two parts of the scone-tart together, cut into triangles, and eat hot or cold. It is nicest hot, but for the litle children perhaps it is more wholesome when cold. The same scone, made with salt instead of sugar and spread with sausage-meat or potted meat, is a very good substitute for meat pies or sausage rolls.
