One cup of sugar, one cup of milk,
Two eggs beaten fine as silk;
Salt and nutmeg, lemon too
Of baking powder teaspoons two.
Lightly stir the four in,
Roll on pie board not too thin;
Cut in diamonds, twists, or rings
Drop in fat that quickly swells
Evenly the spongy cells;
Watch with care the time for turning,
Fry them brown just short of burning;
Roll in sugar, serve when cool,
I use one-fourth cup cream for this rule,
Instead of all milk.

pencilled in notes
milk - use 3 T butter & 2/3 c milk
flour - 3 - 4 cups
1/4 tsp salt, nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla & 1/2 tsp lemon
