3 cups flour or more if necessary

Heat the first four ingredients until sugar is melted. Warm slowly. Cool it.

Add cream, flour and 2 tsp. baking powder.

Make a nice soft dough. Roll thin and cut in diamond shaped. OR can be rolled in log, wrapped in wax paper and put in fridge overnight.

When ready, unroll and slice thin, bake in 350 deg. oven. Watch to judge cooking time.
