Sweet bread "cookie" recipe from Sicily

August 21, 2010 - 7:16pm -- apricat

Struggling with a 100 year old recipe that lists only flour, yeast, water, salt, sugar and lard as the ingredients. Directions are just as spare: 7 cups flour. Add  1 cup sugar and salt. Blend in 1 lb lard as you would a pie dough. Proof 1 cake of yeast and use up to 2 1/2 cups of water in the dough. Let dough rest 1/2 hour. Shape cookies. Let rest overnight and bake at 350˚.
