DIRECTIONS

  • Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt; cut in shortening with a pastry blender until coarse crumbs form.
  • Gradually work in the water to form a pastry-like dough. Turn onto a light floured board. Place a damp cloth over and allow to rest for 1 hour.
  • In large, heavy frying pan, heat oil to 425°F Divide dough in half (you will find it easier to handle this way). Roll each ball of dough as thin as possible. Cut into 3-inch squares and fry in hot oil, pushing squares down into the oil several times so that they will puff evenly. Turn once to brown and cook until golden on both sides. Place on paper towels to drain.
  • Serve warm with honey.
