Ingredients

1 c

baking powder
1/2 tsp
soda
1/4 tsp
salt
2 tsp
melted shortening
flour as needed for recipe

Directions Step-By-Step

Mix together all ingredients except the flour. Add flour to the mixture to make dough stiff enough to roll out sort of like pie crust, only roll it into an oblong instead of out round.
2
Chip 1 lb. butter in small thin slices on top of the dough and sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar.
3
Roll dough jelly-roll style and cut in round circles - like a cinnamon roll.
