Yield: 1 Servings
|4 cups||Sifted cake flour (14 oz.)|
|2½ teaspoon||Baking powder|
|⅔ cup||Soft shortening (5 oz.)|
|1½ cup||Sugar (11-1/2 oz.)|
|1 teaspoon||Vanilla extract|
Sift dry ingredients together; set aside. Mix shortening with sugar, eggs, and vanilla until very light and fluffy. Mix in flour mixture alternately with milk. Refrigerate dough until easy to handle (several hours or overnight). Roll on floured board, cut, and bake at 400 degrees until delicate brown, about 9 minutes. Some almond extract almost always is added, too.
