40 sopaillias

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles cornmeal.
  3. Gradually add water, stirring with a fork (dough will be crumbly).
  4. Turn onto a floured surface and kneed into a smooth ball.
  5. Divide dough in half; let stand 10 minutes.
  6. Roll each half into a thin 12 x 10 rectangle.
  7. Cut dough into 2 1/2 inch squares (do not reroll or patch dough).
  8. Fry a few at a time in deep hot fat (pushing the dough down into the oil immediately with a spatula and bumping the edges on the side of your frier to help them puff up) until golden brown.
  9. Drain on paper towels.
