Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.

1 3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, sweet; softened
1 cup sugar
2 egg
1 tablespoon lemon peel; grated
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 1/2 cup pine nuts
2 teaspoon anise seed (crushed)

Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Cream margarine, add sugar, beat in eggs one at a time until light. Add flour mixture and blend well. Blend in lemon peel and vanilla and almond extracts. Mix in pine nuts and anise seed. Mix until just blended. Cover dough and chill about 2 hours. Preheat oven to 350. Butter and flour 2 baking sheets. Divide dough into 4 pieces. Flour hands and roll each piece into 1 1/2 inch round log. DOUGH IS STICKY. Put 2 logs on each baking sheet - spaced about 4 inches apart. Bake until tops are lightly browned or about 18 minutes. Cool slightly on baking sheets. Transfer logs to a cutting board. Cut crosswise into 1/2 inch thick slices. Put cut side down on baking sheet. Bake about another 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
