RASPBERRY TEA RING
1 recipe baking powder biscuit dough
1/2 cup raspberry jam
1 cup sifted confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons milk (about)
2 tablespoons raspberry jam
Roll dough into oblong sheet, 1/8 inch thick. Spread with raspberry jam. Roll as for jelly roll; bring ends together to form ring and place on greased baking sheet. With scissors, cut 1-inch slices about 2/3 of the way through the ring and turn each section on its side. Brush with melted butter. Bake at 400 F. 30 minutes Combine sugar, milk and jam. When ring is baked, remove from pan and while hot spread with glaze. Serve warm. For plain glaze, omit jam.
Baking Powder Biscuit Dough:
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons lard, or lard and butter mixed
2/3 to 3/4 cup milk
Mix and sift the dry ingredients. Then cut in the fat until it is well blended. Stir in the milk, making a soft dough, just so it can be handled. Roll to 3/4 inch thickness, cut and put in greased, floured pan and let rise 3 minutes.
