Why I Love This Recipe

This is a favorite family recipe which we have enjoyed for four generations.

Ingredients You'll Need

4 cups flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons powdered milk
1 cup warm water
1/2 cup warm water
1 cup lard, melted (authentic) - or oil, such as Crisco (we use olive oil)


Stir together flour, baking powder, salt, and powdered milk.

Gradually, stir in 1 cup of warm water. Mix well.

Gradually add 1/2 cup warm water mix by hand (like you would meatloaf).

Set aside for 1/2 hour.

Melt lard in frying pan. Preheat to frying temperature.

Take small ball of dough. Pat dough flat.

Then, pull dough into a thin circle the size of the frying pan.

Carefully lay the dough in frying pan. Fry until lightly brown on both sides.
