DIRECTIONS

  • Mix flour, non-fat dry milk, baking powder and salt.
  • Add lard or shortening & work in with fingers or a pastry blender, until it is evenly combined.
  • Stir in 3/4 cup water and mix until the dough clings together.
  • Turn dough onto a floured board and knead until smooth and velvety.
  • Wrap tightly with saran wrap and let rest for at least 1/2 hour (or longer).
  • Divide into 6 portions, or more for smaller breads, then press or roll out on a floured board to make 6-7" rounds (or they can also be rolled out and cut into squares).
  • Keep the dough covered until ready for the frying pan.
  • In a frying pan, heat about 1-2" of cooking oil to 375*. Cook pieces in the oil until puffy and golden in color, turn and fry the other side.
  • Drain on paper towels. Serve warm. If you want to keep them for a day, cool and place in plastic bags, or freeze.
  • To reheat place them in the oven at 375* for 5-10 minutes, until warmed.
