by Mrs Ling Chai, from the Pillsbury Bakeoff Cookbook, 1967.

1/2 c. butter
8-oz pkg of cream cheese
1 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. light cream
1 egg yolk, beaten
2 tbsp butter

Oven 350º, yields 60

4.5-oz. can of shrimp, drained and mashed
2 tsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp steak sauce
1 tsp instant garlic (?!?!?)
1 tsp instant onion (?!?!?)
1/2 tsp. monosodium glutamate

Cut butter and cream cheese into flour until mixture is the size of small peas. Add cream, stirring until a dough forms. Shape into a ball. Roll out onto floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut into rounds with 2-inch cutter. Place scant teaspoonful filling into centre of each round. Fold in half, seal edges. Brush with egg yolk diluted with water.
