Cheese fingers

by Lillian Gish

My mother taught both her daughters, Dorothy and myself, many use ful little first aids to home-keeping which often are useful at opportune times, though neither of us make a business of keeping house.

The fact that one does something oneself toward the preparation of a meal adds interest and pleasure, I think.

One of my favorite recipes is for Cheese fingers. The ingredients include 3 oz. grated cheese, 3 oz. flour, 1/2 teaspoonful of baking powder, salt and cayenne to taste.

Mix these ingredients to a stiff paste with the aid of a little milk. Roll round and bake on a. tin in a brisk oven for five minutes till they are very light brown. This makes a pretty dish for the table. The best of the recipe is that you can use little bits of dry cheese in it very nicely.
