Granny’s Buns

Granny Phillips used to make these for me on request. I love her, and I love them.

  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 tsp or 20 ml baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp or 2.5 ml salt
  • 1/3 cup of lard or butter
  • 2/3 cup milk
  1. Sift flour.
  2. Cut lard or butter into flour.
  3. Add salt and baking powder.
  4. Stir in milk and mix.
  5. Knead that dough – 4 more times than you think.
  6. Flour surface and rolling pin and roll out on clean flat surface.
  7. Once your dough is rolled out butter that sucker up like butter is on sale.
  8. Coat with brown sugar and cinnamon and smooth out with your palm.
  9. Roll into a nice toit log and cut into individual buns.
  10. Place on a parchment covered cookie sheet and bake for approx 15 mins at 350.

Sometimes I make some icing to drizzle on top while they are still warm so it’s more like a glaze when it cools. Just icing sugar, milk, butter, corn syrop, and some color if desired. A little vanilla or almond extract is a bonus.
