Lemon Queen Cake

1/3 cup butter

1 cup flour

1/4 teaspoon soda

3 egg whites

5/8 cup powdered sugar

3/4 tablespoon Sunkist lemon juice

Cream the butter; add, gradually, two-thirds of the flour, sifted with soda; then add Sunkist lemon juice. Beat whites of eggs until stiff; add sugar, gradually, while beating constantly; combine mixtures; then fold in remaining flour. Bake forty minutes in a moderate oven.


1 1/4 cups flour

4 tablespoons lard 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/3 cup cold water

3 tablespoons butter

Mix flour and salt, and gently rub in lard with tips of fingers. Add cold water, to make a dough; turn on floured cloth, and knead two minutes. Pat with rolling-pin; lift to prevent sticking, and roll out to a long, rectangular piece. Spread two-thirds of it with the butter, which has been washed in cold water to free it from buttermilk; fold over in three layers; turn it one-quarter of the way around; pat, lift, roll, fold, and turn (do this three times). Roll, to fit pie-plate, and bake. This is a particularly good paste for turnovers and tartlet shells.
