DIRECTIONS

  • Sift flour before measuring. Add sugar, baking powder and salt and sift again into a large mixing bowl. Cut shortening into dry ingredients.
  • In a small bowl, mix together egg and milk, then add mixture, a small amount at a time, to flour/shortening mix. Handle lightly.
  • When dough is formed, roll out on floured board to 1/8 inch thickness.
  • Spread dough with 1 tbsp of the softened butter, sprinkle with 2 tbsp of the brown sugar and the 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Roll tightly, beginning at the edge nearest you. Cut into 2-inch slices.
  • Cream together the remaining 2 tbsp butter and 2 tbsp brown sugar. Spread onto the bottom of a heavy baking pan that will hold the slices fairly close together.
  • Place slices into the pan and bake at 375 for 18-20 minutes.
  • Because this recipes does not have a topping, you can make you own. I make one by mixing melted butter with powdered sugar. Sometimes I add raisins and/or chopped nuts.
