A Mennonite recipe, sort of like doughnuts. If you can get it, home rendered lard works the best to fry it. Traditionally served with watermelon. It is a perfect snack for a picnic!

  1. Mix all together and knead until smooth. Let sit covered for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Roll out and make squares. Cut slits in the middle of each square. pull one side vertically through the slit. It will form a bow like shape. It is not obligatory to form the shapes.
  3. Deep fry till nicely browned.

This recipe went together easily, was fun to make and the dough puffed up beautfully when fried. However, I found the instructions to be somewhat unclear ~ I did not know how thick to roll the dough or what temperature for frying. I searched on Google and did find a recipe that explained the dough thickness and frying temperature. I opted to fry in lard rather than vegetable oil. We found these to be good, but somewhat bland.
