  1. cream shortening and sugar
  2. add eggs one at a time and mix
  3. add vanilla and milk stirring well
  4. sift flour and baking powder together (add this mixture a little at a time)
  5. roll out on slightly floured surface
  6. cut into circles approx. 6” in diameter
  7. put one tablespoon filling of your choice in middle of dough
