 Ingredients List

  • 4 c All-purpose flour
  • 2 tb Vegetable shortening (or
  • -lard)
  • 2 ts Baking powder
  • 2 ts Salt
  • 2 c Tap-hot water


Combine all ingredients except water. Add water slowly, until dough is
soft, but does not stick to hands. Knead dough until satiny. Softer dough
is easier to roll. Make 2 inch balls of dough, and flatten, roll on floured
surface with a light rolling pin. Cook on cast iron griddle, that has been
preheated. Griddle should be hot enough to burn dough in less than 20
seconds. Adjustments are neces- sary, especially on electric stoves. Heat
is approximately 300 F. Yield: 1 dozen.
