Sift flour, measure, and sift with baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening. Add grated lemon rind, sugar, egg, raisins, and enough milk to make a soft dough that can be molded. Pat into sheet 1 inch thick and cut into rounds, or mold small amounts into round buns. Stick a bit of citron in the top of each. Reserve a little of the egg to brush over the top. Place on well-oiled baking sheet. Bake in hot oven (450 F) 12-15 minutes. Brush top with 1 tablespoon sugar moistened with a little cream. Serve hot. 12 servings.
