2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 package dry yeast
1 Tablespoon melted lard
1 teaspoon solid shortening
parchment paper

1. Mix flour, salt, and sugar, and put it in a bowl leave the center hollowed out.
2. Mix one cup warm water with the yeast, and let set three minutes. Add the lard and pour this mixture into the hollow of the flour, mixing well until it forma a ball. Knead well until smooth and elastic. Then, transfer to a bowl previously spread with the solid shortening. Cover the bowl and let dough rise for one hour. Then punch it down and divide the dough into ten portions, rolling each into a ball. Cover these balls with a cloth and allow to rise another hour.
3. Shape each risen ball gently into a square, and put them on a small piece of parchment paper. Steam over boiling water for twenty minutes, then serve or stuff them as in the Stuffed Steamed bread recipe below.
