  • 1-3/4 cups sifted flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 2/3 cup cold water
  • Oil for deep-frying


Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a mixing bowl. Cut in shortening. Add cold water gradually. Mix just enough to hold together, as for pie dough. Turn onto a lightly floured pastry cloth and knead gently until smooth. Return to the bowl, and let stand at least 1 hour. Turn onto pastry cloth and roll to 1/8 inch thickness and cut into 3-inch squares. Heat oil in a deepfryer until hot, and drop in squares a few at a time, turning them several times so they will puff evenly. Fry for 2 or 3 minutes, until golden. Drain and serve immediately.
