Ingredients
  • 4 ounces unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 ounces whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lard or vegetable shortening
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • Canola oil
Directions
  • 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.
