Ingredients:  
2 cups flour, 2 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. salt, 1 T. butter, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup water or milk, 2 cups butter or oil to fry, 1 cup cane honey (regular honey can be used, or the item called cane honey can be found at the Mexican grocery store).

Directions:
Directions:
In a large bowl, sift flour, baking powder and salt. Then, add butter and mix well. Add the eggs, slightly beaten. Then add water or milk, little by little, and mix very well until getting a smooth dough.

Place the dough on a table, slightly sprinkled with flour, and knead it. Let it rest for ten minutes, covered with a dish cloth or towel. On the table, place half the dough and stretch it out until it becomes very thin (about 1/10 of an inch). Cut the dough into small rhombus shaped pieces, 2 inches wide. Then cover them with a cloth. Repeat the process with the remaining half of dough.

In a large pan, heat oil at a high temperature. Fry several pieces simultaneously. Once they are golden on 1 side, turn them over until they are gold on the other side too. Remove the tawa-tawas from the frying pan, drain them and place them on a paper towel to absorb oil. Finally, place them in tray and pour cane honey over them. If wanted, sprinkle with fine sugar too.
