Recipe by Hill Family
READY IN: 30mins
SERVES: 36-42




  • Cream shortening, sugar and beaten egg.
  • Mix in dry ingredients, then alternate mixing in with milk.
  • Chill dough overnight or as long as it takes to make the dough easy to handle.
  • Roll and cut into circles, one for the top and one for the bottom.
  • Place the bottom circle on the greased cookie sheet, add one+ teaspoon jam/jelly in the center. With a moistened finger, wet the outside edge of the bottom circle, place the top circle over the bottom and seal the edges by pressing down. (You can do this with a fork if you prefer, like the edge of a pie crust).
  • You can also put the jam on one side and flip the top over to make a half moon.
  • Bake @ 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until the bottom edge is starting to brown.
