Indian Fry Bread Dessert:
Dough for fry bread: 3 cups flour, 1 tablespoon baking powder, a 1/2 teaspoon salt, a 1/4 cup milk, and a 1 1/2 cups warm water.
Combine in a good size mixing bowl. If you got one of them fancy professional grade mixing machines with the dough paddles use that. My hand is much cheaper so I just dig in with one hand and in the other use a wooden spoon to help bring the dry mix into the dough. Knead that as well as you can the dough should turn into a large ball that is not sticky at all after a few minutes.
About 35-40 minutes before ready to eat. Get that cast iron pan out and add a very generous amount of oil to it, and get that heat way up there. Take one of your dough pieces and start working with your fingers stretching it out. Keep spreading it out with your hands, fingers, fist until you reach a size of 6 inches round. In the middle get a knife and make a small hole all the way through (or just poke a finger through it). Carefully place in the hot oil and fry for about 3 minutes each side (should look golden brown). Cook the remaining ones.
Buy any pie filling (apples, cherries, blueberries, pineapple) what ever you feel like.
Place the fry bread on a plate and get a fork or some chop sticks out. Have some fun poke holes all over it. Open the can of fruit and instead of discarding drain the syrup over the fry bread. Drizzle with honey all over and set aside. In a sauce pan warm the fruit up a little and then scoop on the top. Put the powdered sugar in one of them containers you can get your fingers in. Top with the powdered sugar. Get out a pizza cutter or sharp knife and cut in quarters. Serve with a spoonful of whipped cream.
Fry bread is a little tough so serve with a knife and fork - makes a very delicious dessert and make people wonder how in the world you came up with this one, or what is made of.
