Lincoln Biscuits

Cutting Biscuits

Cutting Biscuits

This past President’s Day, I did a program re-creating Abraham Lincon’s “lunch”.   John Hay, one of Lincoln’s two personal secretaries, noted that Lincoln’s lunch consisted of a biscuit, a glass of milk in winter, some fruit or grapes in summer.  The receipt I chose to prepare belonged to Mary Harlan Lincoln (1846-1937) who married Abraham’s son Robert Todd Lincoln.  The biscuits are being cut with a tin biscuit cutter.
