Super easy recipe, I substituted veg oil for the lard. Dough was left greasy, I sprinkled flour (on greasy dough)and mixed until it became more "dough like". I then added my favorite fillers (sweet potato, apple) you can also use strawberry and blueberries or whatever you like. Cooked for 18 min. It was a big hit with my kids! I took some to a family party and it was a big hit there too! I definitely recommend this recipe. I will definitely make this again!
