1 teaspoon salt
1 cup any flavor fruit jam
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar for decoration

*In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, salt and baking powder.


*Cut in the shortening until the mixture is mealy.


*Stir in the egg yolks and milk mixture.


*Knead the dough together and then refrigerate overnight.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
