As I have been looking through some old recipes I discovered this one for "Abernathy Biscuits". It was one of those recipes that my mother used to like to make during the holiday season.
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 cup white granulated sugar
- 1/2 tsp. grated lemon rind
- 1/2 cup COLD butter
- 1 tsp. caraway seed
In a small bowl whisk together:
- 1 egg beaten
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and form a flat disc. Chill for 20-30 minutes.
Roll out the chilled dough on a slightly floured surface to 1/8" thickness.
Cut the dough in 2 inch circles and prick each one with a fork in a few places.
Bake on a cookie sheet in a preheated 375 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes until golden brown.
