2 1/2 cups flour
6 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar (optional)
1/3 cup lard
2 eggs, optional
1 cup water or more
Combine first four ingredients. Add lard, rubbing it in to form fine
crumbs. Combine egg with water (is using an egg), and add to the flour
mixture. Stir to form a soft dough, and knead briefly.
If using a frying pan, grease the pan then dust with flour. Place
about a quarter of the dough in the pan and heat. Bake until the
bottom is lightly brown, then flip. Bake about 10 minutes on the
opposite side. Bake remaining dough in similar fashion.
If baking in oven, pat down into greased pie plate. Bake in 400 degree
oven for about twenty minutes, or until cooked in the middle.
