      2/3  C             Butter
    1      C             Sugar
    4                    Eggs
    1      Tsp           Vanilla
    2 1/2  C             All-Purpose Flour -- sifted
    1      Tsp           Baker’s Ammonia -- * see note
 Cream butter and sugar at least 10 minutes by hand, or 5 minutes in
 electric mixer.  The mixture should be thick and white.  Add eggs one at a
 time, beating well after each addition.  Stir in vanilla.  If the baker’s
 ammonia is in granular form, crush to a powder with a rolling pin or a
 bottle.  Sift flour and bakers ammonia together.  Stir flour into egg
 mixture and blend thoroughly.  Dough will be soft.  Chill for at least 30
 Cut 6 to 8 -- 8 rounds from waxed paper.  Spread the dough thinly and
 evenly on paper rounds, leaving about half-inch margin to allow for
 expansion during baking.
 Place to or three round (whatever it will hold) on a baking sheet.  Bake at
 400° 8 to 10 minutes, until golden brown on edges.  Remove at once from
 cookie sheet, but do not remove paper until you are ready to assemble cake.
  Assemble by placing well-spiced apple butter between each layer.  Leave
 top unadorned.
 *The baker’s amonia (ammonium carbonate or hartshorn) may be bought at
 drugstores.  Or 3 3/4 tsp baking powder may be substituted.
