"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Mix flour, salt and baking powder together. Cut in shortening, so it form a clump when squeezed *. Add enough water to just form a mass. Kneed by fold dough over on it self to form a soft non-sticky dough (about 15 times). Cover with plastic wrap and let dough rest for 5 -10 minutes. Then squeezed off in 1 inch balls...let rest for 10 minutes. Roll out to desired thickness. Cook at high temp (450) on a un-greased heavy fry pan until top bubbles then turn over.
