Recipe Ingredients:

1 cup vegetable shortening
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine shortening, flour, salt, and baking soda. Mix in buttermilk.
  2. On a lightly foured surface, roll out dough to a thickness of 1/8-inch. Cut dough into 2 1/2-inch rounds or squares.
  3. To Make Canapes: Using a filling of your choice, place a teaspoon in the center of each round. Fold the dough over into crescents being sure to seal the pastries very firmly so that none of the filling escapes.
