INGREDIENTS

Nutrition
  • 2
    cups shelled pine nuts
  • 1
    cup water
  • 1
    pinch salt
  • 2
    tablespoons lard or 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

DIRECTIONS

  • Mash the pinon nuts on a metate with a mano or mash with a mortar.
  • Mashed pinons will look like meat, mix mashed nuts with water and salt. Then knead until it is a soft batter.
  • Let batter sit a while before cooking.
  • Put a large skillet on the fire, when it is hot add the lard or vegetable oil.
  • Drop the batter in the skillet by the tablespoonful, flattening out into patties about 3 inches across. Reduce the heat so the cakes cook but do not burn. This bread is tasty either hot or cold.
