One quart flour sifted twice, 1/2 cup lard, 1 cup sour milk, 1 scant teaspoon soda dissolved in milk, 1 large teaspoon yeast powder. If dough is too stiff add sweet milk or water. Save out a cup of flour and after lard is mixed with balance sift in yeast powder with the cup of flour. Do not knead any more than you have to. I always stir with a spoon and roll out quickly.
