posted by pastrypro 08-21-98 5:45 AM

4 Tablespoons lard
4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
4 eggs, room temperature
1 cup sugar


With a fork mix together the first 4 ingredients. When crumbly, add eggs that have been mixed with sugar. Stir to combine and then add add enough milk to make a medium dough. Knead the dough a few times.

The dough should not be as firm as a typical white bread dough, but not as soft as a rich sweet bread dough. Allow the dough to rest for at least 30 minutes, covered.

Heat 6 cups of Crisco to 370F. Roll out the dough into a rectangle a little less than 1/4 inch thick and then cut into wedges.

Fry the wedges , a few at a time, turning after they have browned on one side. Remove and drain on brown paper. Serve immediately springled with cinnamon sugar or drizzles with honey.
