   Mix flour, baking powder, & sugar together on a clean
   surface. Make a “well” in the middle of the mixture.

   work the dough. Add lard in small pieces and continue
   working the dough. Using a dough scraper in one hand,

   elastic. Cover dough with a moderately damp cloth and
   allow to rest for one hour. Must be used within 1 - 2
   hrs. Con't be frozen. If not all used within that time
