1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. shortening
2/3 c. sugar
1 egg, unbeaten
1 Tbsp. milk

Sift flour once; measure. Add baking powder and salt and sift again. Cream shortening; add sugar gradually and cream together until light and fluffy. Add egg and milk and beat well. Add flour, small amount at a time, mixing well after each addition. Divide dough into 2 parts. To one part, add chocolate and blend. Roll each on floured wax paper into rectangular shape 1/8-inch thick. Lay plain sheet over chocolate sheet. Remove wax paper. Roll like jelly roll. Chill until firm. Cut into 1/8-inch slices. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 375° for 10 minutes or until done.
