Navajo Fry Bread

A couple of weeks ago I waited for about 30 minutes in line to get one of these babies at a fair! They are so simple and super yummy! You can also serve the fry dough in taco-form (like I did here), or you can sprinkle them with powedered sugar, smother them in butter and honey, or spread jam on top! Anyway you jazz these up, they will be a winner!

Fry Dough Ingredients:

2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 Tbl shortening
1/3 cup milk
2/3 to 3/4 cup warm water


Mix all of the dry ingredients well and then add the water gradually. Use your hands to knead into a soft dough (but not sticky). Pinch off pieces of the dough and pat down to a 2 inch circle (about 1/4 inch thick). Fry them in some hot oil until brown, and turn only once. Drain on some paper towel and serve as you wish!
