Ingredients

  • 2 cups unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons shortening
  • 2/3 to 3/4 cup water
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • Butter, honey and lemon juice, optional

Directions

  • Combine flour, dry milk powder, baking powder and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Add water gradually, mixing to form a firm ball. Divide dough; shape into 12 balls. Let stand, covered, for 10 minutes. Roll each ball into a 6-in. circle. With a sharp knife, cut a 1/2-in.-diameter hole in center of each.
  • In a large cast-iron skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Fry dough circles, one at a time, until puffed and golden, about 1 minute on each side. Drain on paper towels; if desired, serve warm with butter, honey and fresh lemon juice.
