Step 1

Mix flour, sugar & powder well.

Cut margarine in small cubes (cut long ways then short ways for tiny cubes).

Throw margarine cubes into flour, then work it into flour until evenly broken up--much like making a pie crust.

Add eggs (mix first in separate bowl) and rub together until even.

Add milk & mix until not sticky but balls up.

Roll out on floured surface about 1/4-1/3" thick.

Spread with jam or jelly on entire surface leaving 1/2 " space along edges.

Roll dough into one large log & fold ends under to keep jelly from oozing out.

Transfer to foil lined cookie sheet.

Bake at 275 degrees for 45 minutes.
