DIRECTIONS

  • Combine dry ingredients; cut in butter.
  • Add enough warm milk to make a soft dough, easy to handle.
  • Knead on floured board until dough is very smooth and soft but elastic.
  • Do not use a lot of extra flour, and don't overknead, 3-4 minutes.
  • Divide dough into 6-8 balls and brush the tops with melted butter.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and let stand 30-45 minutes.
  • Pat out each ball into a round, 5 or 6 inches in diameter and 1/4 inch thick. Using your index finger, poke a hole through the middle of each round. (Allows middle to cook; will close up while frying.)
  • Fry in 3" of oil/fat (preheated to 365 degrees). I use my electric fry pan, so I can fry two at a time.
  • Dough should rise immediately to surface.
  • Cook until brown on one side, turn, and brown on other side being careful to not pierce crust.
  • Drain on absorbent paper and serve hot.
