3. Heat lard to 365 to 370 degrees in a deep sauce pan.

4. Roll dough, a small portion at a time, 1/16 inch thick on a floured surface.

5. Using a floured knife or pastry wheel, cut into diamond shapes, 5" x 2"; make a lengthwise slit in the centre of each diamond. Pull the tip of one end through each slit and tuck back under itself.
