Number of Servings: 8


    3 c unbleached flour
    4 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp salt
    2 T unsalted butter or shortening
    1 c water
    Olive oil, vegetable oil, shortening - enough to cover bottom of skillet


Mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in butter or shortening until mixture is coarse and crumbly. Add in 3/4 c to 1 c water to make a soft dough. It may be a little sticky, so add a little more flour as needed. Divide dough into 4 parts. Flatten each part into a circle with your hands. Heat oil in pan and fry each part until golden brown and puffed on both sides, about 3 minutes each. Can be eaten as is, with butter or with jam/jelly.
