- Vegetable oil for frying*
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1/3 cup water
Preheat oil in a Presto® electric deep fryer. If using an adjustable thermostat deep fryer, set at 375°.
Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Blend in butter using fingertips or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Gradually add water, stirring with a fork. Turn out on lightly floured surface. Knead and fold into a smooth ball. Divide in half; let rest 10 minutes. Roll out each half to 10- x 12-inch rectangles and then cut into 2- x 3-inch rectangles. Do not re-roll or patch dough. Drop a few at a time into deep fryer. Fry about 1 minute on each side until golden. Drain. Serve hot with Orange Honey Butter or honey.
