3 cups (750 ml) flour
2 tbsp. (30 ml) baking powder
1 tsp. (5 ml) salt
1 tsp. (5 ml) sugar
1/2 cup (125 ml) lard
1 cup (250 ml) milk

1 cup (250 ml) brown sugar
1 tsp. (5 ml) cinnamon
1 cup (250 ml) water

Sift the dry ingredients together. Blend in the lard to form a coarse mixture. 
Gradually add the milk until a soft dough is formed.  Roll the dough until it 
is fairly thin, although it should be thicker than a regular pie crust.

Butter the dough with soft butter, cover with 3/4 inch (6 mm) of brown sugar and 
sprinkle with cinnamon. Roll the dough like a jelly roll and slice into circles 
about 1/2 inch (15 mm) thick.

Pour water into a casserole dish. Put the sliced dough into the casserole and 
bake at 375? F (190? C) for about 30 minutes or until the pets de soeur are golden brown.

Variation: Cranberry jam may be substituted for the sugar and the cinnamon.
