Yield: 12 Servings
4 c Flour
2 ts Sugar
1/4 c Shortening or lard
1 tb Baking powder
1 1/2 ts Salt
1 1/4 c Water or more if needed
Sift dry ingredients together. Cut in shortening until crumbly. Add
water and mix until holds together. Knead 10-15 times until dough
forms a smooth ball. Cover and let set for 20 minutes. Divide dough
into two parts. Roll dough to 1/8" thickness on lightly floured
board. Cut into 3" squares or triangles. Do not allow to dry; cover
those waiting to fried. When ready to fry, turn upside down so that
surface on bottom while resting is on top when frying. Fry in 3" hot
oil until golden brown, turning once. Add only a few at a time to
maintain proper temperature. Drain on paper towels.
