In the 1960s, an old cowboy gave this recipe to my mom when we lived on the Mesa Redondo Ranch, Concho, Arizona.
To each cup of flour, add:
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. salt
- Enough milk or water to make a stiff dough, or
- ¼ cup powdered milk and warm water to make stiff dough.
Knead dough until smooth, not sticky, or just make balls about 3” diameter and pull the ball into a 6” circle with fingers. Slash one side from the center out with a sharp knife in five places. Drop into hot grease. Brown on both sides and drain on newspaper or paper towels.
