Ingredients
4 cups flour
2 tsp. sugar
1/4 cup shortening or lard
1 tbsp. baking powder
1-1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/4 cup water

Methods/steps
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-inch thickness on lightly floured board. Cut into 3-inch squares or triangles. Do not allow drying; cover those waiting to be fried. When ready to fry, turn upside down so that surface on bottom while resting is on top when frying. Fry in 3-inch hot oil until golden brown, turning once. Add only a few at a time to maintain proper temperature. Drain on paper towels.
