"Have a seat, my lord. I've got a batch of biscuits still fresh from the oven." - Undertaker
Some of my readers have asked why Undertaker enjoys dog biscuits. To tell the truth, I don't think he eats dog biscuits at all! I think his favorite snack is based on white funeral biscuits (or cookies in America) that were popular in Victorian times.
These biscuits (or a variation thereof) were served at funerals as part of a mourning tradition, and sometimes were made in the shape of bones. They're more spiced than sweet, so you may enjoy them better with golden power icing if you've got a sweet tooth.
No cake flour? You can substitute 3 cups cake flour with 2 5/8 cups all purpose flour sifted with 3/8 cup cornstarch.

In a medium bowl, mix 2 cups of the cake flour with the baking soda.
In a separate, large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Mix in nutmeg.
Alternate adding milk and the flour mixture to the large bowl while carefully stirring.
Gently mix in remaining flour to form a dough.
Cover and refrigerate until well-chilled (at least 2 hours; preferably overnight).
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (163 degrees C).
Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface (1/4-inch thick).
Cut dough using a bone-shaped cookie cutter (or a knife).
Place each biscuit on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake until lightly golden (about 18-20 minutes). Serve with tea.
