 Ingredients List

  • 1 pk Active dry yeast (1/4 oz)
  • 1/4 c Lukewarm water
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 3 tb Vegetable shortening, melted
  • 1 c Cold water
  • 4 1/2 c All purpose flour


In a large bowl, soften the yeast in the lukewarm water. Mix the salt, 2
tablespoons of the shortening, and the cold water together and add to the
yeast mixture.

Sift in the flour gradually, beating well after each addition for a smooth
consistency. You will probably have to knead in the final cup of flour.

Shape the dough into a ball, brish lightly with the remaining shortening,
and cover with a dry cloth. Set the bowl in a warm place until doubled in
bulk, anout 1 hour.

Punch the dough down and, on a floured board, knead about 5 minutes. Shape
into 2 round loaves on a well greased baking sheet. Cover with a dry cloth
and set to rise another 45 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Bake the loaves on a cookie sheet 50
minutes, until they are light brown and sound hollow when tapped. *****

This is an adaptation of the traditional recipe that is still being used by
almost every Native American family.
