  • Melt lard or bacon fat to a depth of 1/2 inch in a large skillet; bring to a temperature of 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) over medium-high heat. Shape heaping tablespoons of the dough into flattened balls (thickness is a personal preference). Fry in hot oil, turning once, until crisp and golden brown, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
