Directions:
Preheat oven to 450. Mix together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large bowl. Cut in shortening and mix (fingers work best). Add egg mixture and mix well. Put dough onto a floured board and knead for about 1 minute. If mixture is too wet to knead, sprinkle with a little more flour. Roll out mixture about 1/2 inch thick, cut with a cookie cutter dipped with flour, and place on an ungreased baking pan. Bake 10 to 12 minutes.
