Old Fashioned Soda Crackers


sour milk
1/2 teaspoon soda
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon butter, softened
1 teaspoon lard


Mix enough sour milk, in which the soda has been dissolved, into the flour to make a very stiff dough. Knead well, working in the butter and lard, and roll out very thin. Cut, shaping the crackers as you wish, sprinkle with coarse salt, and prick them in patterns with a fork. Bake the soda crackers in a moderate oven (350 degrees F) until they are crisp.
