Preparation / Directions:
Heat the oven to 450 degrees F. Heat the butter in a square pan 9 X 9 X 2-inches, in the oven until the butter is melted. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Add the milk and stir with a fork just until a soft dough forms, about 30 strokes. Turn the dough out onto a well-floured cloth-covered board. Coat the dough lightly with flour. Knead lightly about 10 times. Roll or pat the dough into an 8-inch square. With a floured butter knife, cut the dough into halves, then cut each half into 9 strips. Dip each strip into the melted butter, coating both sides. Arrange the strips close together in two rows in the pan. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
