 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      2/3   c            Butter, melted*
      1/3   c            Milk
    1       ea           Egg
    1 1/2   c            All-purpose flour*
    1 1/4   c            Quick Quaker Oats, uncooked
      1/4   c            Sugar
    1       tb           Baking powder
    1       t            Cream of tartar
      1/2   ts           Salt
      1/2   c            Raisins or currants*
 
   (My comment: Preheat oven to 425 F.  I suggest you
   plump the raisins.) (I vary the items marked *)
       Add butter, milk and egg to combined dry
   ingredients; mix just until dry ingredients are
   moistened.  Stir in raisins.  Shape dough to form
   ball*; pat out on lightly floured surace to form
   8-inch circle*. Cut into 8 to 12* wedges; bake on
   greased cookie sheet in preheated hot oven (425 F.) 12
   to 15 minutes or until light golden brown.  Serve warm
   at breakfast or brunch with butter, preserves or
   honey, as desired.
      Made as above, with BUTTER, these are absolutely
   wonderful!  The buttery aroma is to die for!  However,
   I seldom make them that way because of the cholesterol
   and because my wife and I almost always use whole
   wheat flour.
