1 pound of sugar.

1 pound of butter.

12 eggs.

3 teaspoonfuls of baking powder.

Flour to make soft dough - 3 pounds.

Cream the butter and sugar together the same as for pound cake. Beat the eggs and mix them in, then the powder, add some flavoring, then flour. Let the dough, after it has been worked smooth, stand a few minutes before rolling it out. Sift sugar over the sheet of dough before cutting out the cakes.
