“It is extremely important how you make these so read through first so they are not heavy, you don't want to add any more water unless you are really having problems it will cause the flavor to be not as bright, you want light flaky and fall apart at the end, we eat these with honey but I think it would maybe make a good apple pie crust broken up too.”

  2. Cut in the shortening til it looks like cornmeal.
  3. Add in water very gradually stirring with a fork it will be crumbly.
  4. Turn dough onto a floured surface and knead until you have a smooth ball.
  5. Divide in half and let stand for 10 minutes.
  6. Roll each half into a 10x12" rectangle about 1/8 in thick.
  7. Cut into 3 inch squares and fry 3 or 4 at a time in oil that is 400 degrees for 30 seconds on each side.
