Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 3/4 - 1 cup of water

Directions

  • Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
  • Add the fat (lard, butter, or bacon grease) to the mix. The fat should be evenly distributed in the mix.
  • Gradually add water and mix the ingredients together with your hands.
  • Knead the dough gently adding more water if needed. Dough should be easy to handle without being too sticky. Add small amounts of flour if needed.

  • Place on baking sheet or directly on oven rack and bake at 425°F for 10 minutes.
