Main Ingredients

1/2 cup vegetable shortening

1/2 cup unsalted margarine, or butter

1 1/4 cups sugar

3 large eggs

1/4 cup orange juice, or milk

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder


1In a mixing bowl, cream the shortening, margarine (or butter) and sugar together. Add the eggs and blend until smooth. (If the mixture is hard to blend or seems curdled, add a bit of flour to bind it).

2Stir in the orange juice, or milk, and the vanilla. Fold in the flour, salt and baking powder and mix to make a firm but soft dough. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and pat the dough into a smooth mass. Cover it and let it rest for 10 minutes. If the dough is too soft, refrigerate for an hour or up to 1 day.

3Preheat oven to 350F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

4Roll out one piece of dough on a plastic wrap lined counter (or lightly floured surface) to a thickness between 1/4 and 1/8 inch. Cut 4" rounds with a cookie cutter and fill each round with a generous teaspoonful of the filling. Fold in the edges of the circle to form a triangle of pastry encasing the filling. Repeat with the remaining dough and filling.

5Bake until golden Brown (18-22 minutes).

6If you prefer, this dough can be made ahead and refrigerated up to 2 days or frozen for a couple of months. Allow the dough to come to room temperature before rolling it out.
