Indian Fry Bread

A state fair staple.  The Crowls came over on Friday to make these with us.  The dough recipe is:

4 cups flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
I teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 cup lard/shortening
Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Add the warm water and mix until soft and elastic. You do not want the dough to be sticky. You can add a little more warm water to make the dough soft if it becomes too stiff. Form round balls out of dough and stretch to desired size for frying. Melt the lard in a heavy frying pan. Do not drop the dough it (it splatters). brown on both sides. Take out and drain between paper towels. If bubble forms when cooking poke a small hole in the center of the bread.

Dinner toppings: Refried beans, ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream and salsa

Dessert toppings: Honey, powdered sugar
