Yield: 12 servings
|4 cups||White flour|
|1 tablespoon||Baking powder|
|1½ cup||Warm water|
|1 cup||Lard OR oil for frying|
Mix dry ingredients together. Add warm water to dry ingredients. Knead until dough is soft and elastic and does not stick to bowl. If necessary, add a little more warm water. Shape dough into balls the size of a small peach. Let these sit for 15 minutes. Pat out a bit, pinch edges and then pat back and forth by hand until dough is about ½-¾" thick and is round. Make a small hole in the center of the round. Melt lard in a heavy frying pan. Carefully, put rounds into hot fat, one at a time. Brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
Serve hot. Submitted By WESLEY PITTS On 10-15-94
