English fried dough
Take and make a foile of gode past as thynne as paper; kerue it out wyt a saucer & frye it in oile; oþer in grece; and þe remnaunt, take hony clarified and flamme þerwith. Alye hem vp and serue hem forth. – Forme of Cury
I made a pastry dough with flour, lard, salt and water. Once the dough was kneaded and set to rest I rolled it out as thin as possible and cut it into circles with a biscuit cutter. I then heated oil in a pan and fried the dough until crisp and golden. Just before serving I brushed on heated honey.
