DIRECTIONS

  • Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Cut in shortening until mixture resembles cornmeal.
  • Gradually add water, stirring with a fork (dough will be crumbly).
  • Turn onto a floured surface and kneed into a smooth ball.
  • Divide dough in half; let stand 10 minutes.
  • Roll each half into a thin 12 x 10 rectangle.
  • Cut dough into 2 1/2 inch squares (do not reroll or patch dough).
  • Fry a few at a time in deep hot fat (pushing the dough down into the oil immediately with a spatula and bumping the edges on the side of your frier to help them puff up) until golden brown.
  • Drain on paper towels.
  • Serve with honey or roll in sugar-cinnamon mixture.
