   Mix the flour, sugar and baking powder together in a
   bowl.  Make a well in the middle and add the eggs,
   milk, salt and vanilla.  Beat these together and
   gradually work on the flour.  Roll out on a floured
   board to about 1/4 inch or a little thinner if
   preferred.
   
   Cut the dough into 2 x 4-inch strips and simply make 3
   or 4 slits in the center of each.  Fry in deep oil
   until golden brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
   
   HINT:  These will be firmer than doughnuts.
   
   Yield: approximately 18 to 20.
