Who doesn't love a yummy dessert??? I think they are one of my downfall's, nothing like a gorgeous cake, a pudding, or an old fashioned Jelly Roll.

That's the recipe I'm sharing today. Whenever I make these, they disappear that same day. I usually make two and Curt and the kids just devour them.

Old-Fashioned Jelly Roll

3 large eggs, 1 cup fine flour, 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 cup pastry flour, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 2 tablespoons cold water, favorite preserve for filling, confectioner's sugar for dusting.

Separate eggs, beating yolks and sugar together till quite thick; add extract, then add lightly the stiffly beaten egg whites. Sift together 4 times flour, baking powder and salt; fold very lightly into egg mixture alternately with the cold water.

Turn batter into a jelly roll pan, which has been lined with well-greased paper. Bake in moderate oven (350°F) for about 10 minutes; turn out on a clean, slightly damp cloth. Remove paper; cut crisp edges from sponge, spread with favorite preserve and roll quickly while the sponge is still warm. Sift fine confectioner's sugar on top.

*I've also rolled it up and let it cool down, then unrolled it and filled with whipped cream, or pudding or something else. It's deliscious that way too :) *
