       Title: Orange Tea Biscuits
  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 14 servings
  
       2 c  Flour
       1 ts Baking powder
       1 ts Salt
       4 tb Shortening
     3/4 c  Milk
       1 tb Grated orange rind
            Orange juice
       1 sm Sugar cubes
  
       Sift flour, baking powder and salt together into mixing bowl. Cut in
   shortening with a pastry blender, blending it until the mixture resembles
   coarse corn meal. Add orange rind. Stirring in with a fork, add enough milk
   to make soft dough, or until flour leaves sides of bowl and follows fork;
   continue stirring until all flour disappears.
      Turn out on board; knead lightly for about 1/2 minute. Turn smooth side
   up and pat dough or roll 1/2 thick; cut with floured biscuit cutter.
   Transfer biscuits to a greased baking sheet; place 1 apart if crusty
   biscuits are desired, or barely touching each other for softer biscuits
   with less crust.  Press a small cube of sugar dipped in orange juice into
   top of each biscuit. Bake at 450 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.
