Flour Baking powder Fine salt Warm water Shortening Honey Cinnamon and sugar mix Powdered sugar Whipped cream
To start, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Next, rub in the shortening.Slowly add the water while working the crumbs with your hands or a spoon.
Roll the dough into a ball. Then, divide it into 5 equal pieces. Shape them into a ball as well. Then, roll each ball into a disc that is roughly 8 inches in diameter.
Cut the disc into 4 triangular wedges. Obviously, one side of the triangle will be curved, and that's perfect! Continue the process until all of your dough has been portioned.
Heat the vegetable oil in a deep-fryer or large pot. Then, add a couple of wedges to the hot oil. Leave them to fry until they start to puff up.
You can serve them stuffed, filled, or simply dusted in sugar. And they make fantastic savory and sweet bite-sized treats.
