Burning Tree Adobe Bread

1 package dry yeast (1/4 oz)
1/4 cup warm water
2 tablespoons melted lard or shortening
1 teaspoon salt
4 1/2 cups flour
1 cup water

1. Soften the yeast in the warm water in a large bowl. Then mix in the
melted lard or shortening and the salt. 2. Add the flour alternately with
the water, sifting the flour a little at a time and beating well after each
addition to make a smooth mixture. You will probably have to knead in the
final cup of flour. 3. Shape the dough into a ball, and place in a greased
bowl, brush lightly with melted lard or shortening, cover with a dry cloth,
and set in a warm place to rise for about 1 hour. 4. When the dough has
doubled in bulk, punch down, turn onto a floured board, and knead for about
5 minutes. Divide into two equal parts and shape into two round loaves on
a well-oiled board or greased baking tin. 5. Cover the loaves with a dry
cloth, set in a warm place and let rise for 15 minutes. 6. Bake the bread
in a hot oven, 400F, for 50 minutes or until the loaves are lightly browned
and sound hollow when thumped. Cool, cut into wedges before serving.
