 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       c            Flour
    1       t            Salt
    1       t            Baking soda
    2       ts           Cream of tartar
    3       tb           Butter -- room temperature
    1       ea           Egg -- room temp light beat
      1/2   c            Buttermilk -- room temperature
 
   In bowl, mix flour, salt, baking soda and cream of
   tartar. Stir thoroughly. With fingers, rub the butter
   into the dry ingredients. Gradually stir beaten egg
   and buttermilk into the flour mix. If it is a bit too
   moist and sticks to hands, add a bit of flour. Turn
   the dough onto a lightly floured work surface and
   knead as little as possible to achieve a soft, pliable
   dough ball. Divide dough into 2 equal parts.  Flatten
   each with the knuckles into a round disc.  About 6 in
   diameter and 1/2 thick. Prick about a dozen times
   with fork. Then cut in four sections each. Bake on
   lightly greased baking sheet until tan. At 375 degrees
   for about 15 minutes. You can add 1/2 cup raisins or
   currants if you wish. FROM: SUSAN HOHLWEG   (MSPN49A)
