1 pound shortening
1 cup milk
4 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup any flavor fruit jam
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar for decoration

*Warm milk to just above room temperature.

*Dissolve the yeast in the milk, set aside.

*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).

*Dust a clean, dry surface with confectioners' sugar. Knead the dough for a few minutes.

*Carefully roll out your dough to 1/4 inch thickness.

*Cut out circles with a cookie cutter.

*Place a teaspoon of jam on the center of each circle, fold the dough over, and seal the edge with a fork.

*Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven.
