- 2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour

- 1 cup powdered confectioners' sugar
- 3 -4 tablespoons light cream
- Pastry-- Combine in a bowl, the flour, shortening, salt, and cut with a knife until mealy.
- Beat the egg yolk in a cup measure and fill with the milk to the 2/3 cup measure line-- Blend this milk/egg mixture into the dry ingredients to make a dough.
- Roll half the dough to fit a 15x10x1-inch cookie sheet with edges.
