    Pop Tarts

    List of Ingredients

    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup vegetable shortening
    2 eggs
    2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 tsp. baking powder
    Your favorite flavor jam, preserves, or fruit butter
    1 egg white, beaten with 1 Tbsp. milk
    Sugar for sprinkling on top

    Cream together sugar and shortening, beating until light. Beat in
    eggs until creamy, then stir in flour and baking powder to amek
    soft dough. Divide dough evenly into 16 parts. Roll each part into
    a flattened ball and set aside on a plate. Wrap plate in plastic
    wrap and refrigerate two hours. Grease cookie sheet and set aside.

    tart on cookie sheet and prick top with fork.

    with sugar, if desired. Bake 350 for 25 minutes, until edges are
    browned. Prick again during first 10 minutes of baking keep them
