4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons shortening
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 quarts oil for frying
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the shortening using a pastry blender or two knives, until the pieces are no bigger than pea sized. Pour in the warm water and mix to form a dough. Cover and let rest twenty minutes.
While the dough is resting, heat the oil in a deep fryer or heaving bottomed pan to 375 degrees.
Roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thick on a lightly floured surface. Cut the dough into 3 inch squares. Fry until golden brown on both sides, then drain on paper towels. Serve warm drizzled with honey.
