Cream sugar, shortening and egg. Gradually add 1/2 cup milk and flavoring. Blend well.
Sift flour, salt, and baking powder in a bowl. Make hollow in center and gradually mix in sugar mixture.
Mix until liquid is absorbed. If too dry, gradually add balance of milk to make soft manageable dough.
Mix lightly, pat into a ball. Wrap in waxed paper and set in refrigerator for 1/2 hour or more.
