Cinnamon Rolls (Pets de Soeur)
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 ¼ inch of brown sugar and sprinkle with cinnamon.
Roll the dough up like a jelly roll and slice into circles about ½ inch thick.
Pour water into a casserole dish.
Put the sliced dough into the casserole and bake at 375℉ (190℃) F 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.
