Reduce Champagne


In a medium saucepan over high heat bring champagne to a boil 15 minutes or until reduced to about a ½ cup. Chill until cold to the touch. Transfer to a measuring cup.

Combine flour and baking powder for a nice, even rise, in a small mixing bowl. Set aside. Then, in a large mixing bowl, whisk flour and baking powder together. Set aside.



In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add ½ cup of champagne reduction. Stir until just combined. Gradually add flour mixture and stir until a very soft dough forms.
