These are "you can't eat just one". My husband can eat more than...well let's just say he can eat a LOT of these yummy little breads. I like them best with strawberry jam since I'm not really a honey lover.


5 ½ c. flour
2 t. salt
2 t. sugar
1 ½ T. baking powder
½ c. + 1 T. shortening

Oil for frying. Fill pan with approximately 2-3 inches of oil. Heat to medium heat

Work all ingredients together with pastry blender or a knife until shortening is worked into flour and is about the size of small peas. Add 2 c. water and knead until smooth. Add a little more flour if dough is too sticky. Cover with damp cloth and let rise for one hour. Pinch off into small amounts, about the size of a ping pong ball. Roll fairly thin. Fry in hot oil, turning when each side is browned and puffy. Sprinkle with powdered sugar or serve hot with honey and butter.

Ooh, these would be fun to make! I love them with honey dripping off.
