  • In a separate bowl, sift or whisk 5 cups flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda and mace.
  • Mix dry ingredients into creamed ingredients 1/3 at a time. Divide into 2 or 3 discs or rolls. Cover each in plastic wrap. Chill for at least one hour.
  • Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into 2-3 inch circles or desired shapes.
