    1       tb           Butter
    4       c            White flour
    1       t            Salt

   out onto a lightly floured baking sheet.
   
   Flatten the dough into a circle 1 1/2 inches thick
   with the palm of your hand. Make a cross in the center
   with a floured knife.
   
   Bake at 425 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes.
