How to make it

  • In a food processor, pulse together the flours, salt, baking powder, and sugar.
  • Add the lard or shortening and pulse to combine.
  • Add the buttermilk and pulse until a moist dough forms.
  • Transfer to a lightly floured work surface, and knead several times until it binds into a cohesive mass.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and let rest for at least 30 minutes.
  • Pour oil to a depth of 4 inches into a heavy saucepan and heat to 375 degrees F.
  • Meanwhile, divide the dough in half.
  • On a lightly floured work surface, roll out half of the dough 1/8 to 1/4-inch thick.
  • Cut into 6 squares or triangles.
  • Drop 2 cutouts, 1 at a time, into the hot oil and fry, rolling them over, until golden, 40 to 50 seconds.
  • Drain on paper towels.
  • Repeat with the remaining dough.
  • Serve at once on warmed plates with scoops of ice cream, cream anglais or dusted with powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar. Or tear off corner & squirt honey inside.
