Directions:
Mix cornmeal with a little salt. Add BOILING WATER and mix well. Then wet your hands and shape cornmeal mixture into small pones. Pat out, leaving fingerprints on pones. Brush tops with oil. Bake in a lightly greased iron skillet at 450 until the crust is between a golden and brown. You may want to turn them once. To fry the pones, make them smaller and fry in deep oil until golden brown. Drain well and serve hot.
