ROMAGNA PIADINA Granny’s recipe

Granny’s recipe, (the secret lies in how the dough is mixed) INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Kg of flour 00 (if possible the brand should be spadoni gran mugnaio)
  • 120 grams of lard
  • salt
  • warm water (both in winter and summer)

Directions: Make a mound of the flour with a well in the middle and knead with the lard and salt. When the lard is melt make again a mound with a well in the middle, add warm water, knead again until the dough is consistent, a bit more thick than pizza dough.
