       4 c  Flour                               1 tb Baking powder
       2 ts Sugar                           1 1/2 ts Salt

   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.
