Here is Wyona's VEGAN recipe (i.e., no eggs, no lard). At the bottom of the page you can find the traditional beaver tail recipe on Pinterest -- yummy as well, and a remembrance I have of Newfoundland!
*1 C. Warm Water
*1 tsp. Brown Sugar
*2 tsp. Granular Yeast
*1 tsp. Vanilla
*1/4 C. Oil
LET STAND while mixing dry ingredients:
*2 C. Flour
*1/2 tsp. Turmeric Powder
*1/2 tsp. Salt
*1/4 C. Sugar
ADD above to the wet mixture and KNEAD until dough is soft and smooth.
LET RISE until double in bulk.
PINCH off golf-ball size pieces and roll out into think oval shapes.
PLACE on well-greased cookie sheets, prick with fork and sprinkle with
BAKE at 350F on middle rack until golden.
