 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   18                    oysters -- & their liquor
    2 1/4  cupfuls       milk
    1      tablespoon    margarin
    1                    pimiento
    1      cupful        grated cheese
    1      cupful        chopped celery
                         Flour
    2      tablespoons   shortening
    1      teaspoonful   salt
    4      teaspoonfuls  baking-power
 
 ** you will note tablespoon should be tablespoonful also did you notice 
 the spelling of margarine.
 
 Melt the margarin, add three tablespoonfuls of flour, and cook until the 
 mixture bubbles.  Add one and one-half cupfuls of cold milk gradually, 
 stirring constantly.  Stir in the celery and cook twenty minutes in a 
 double-boiler.  Add the pimiento chopped and the cheese.  Cook the
 oysters 
 in their own liquor until the edges curl, and add them, cut in small 
 pieces, together with the liquor strained, to the white sauce.  Serve in 
 cups made of the following mixture:  sift together two cupfuls of bread 
 flour, the salt, and the baking-powder.  Mix in the shortening
 thoroughly 
 and add about three-fourths cupful of milk or enough to make a soft
 dough. 
  toss on a well-floured board, roll to one-have inch thickness, and cut 
 with a biscuit cutter.  Press each biscuit over an inverted greased 
 gem-pan.  Bake a delicate brown in a 450 Degree F. oven.  Arrange on a
 hot 
 platter and fill the cases with the oyster mixture.
 
 I am not sure that a gem-pan is maybe equivalent to our muffin tins.
