DIRECTIONS

  • Sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Cut shortening in until mixture is a rough texture.
  • Gradually add warm water.
  • Mix to form dough.
  • Knead until smooth.
  • Cover and let stand for 20 minutes (this will make it easier to roll out).
  • Start oil heating (desired temp is 375° - 400°).
  • On a lightly floured board, roll dough thin (between 1/4 and 1/8 inch).
  • Cut into 3 inch squares.
  • Fry a few at a time, turning when golden and puffed up.
  • Drain on paper towels.
  • Serve immediately.
