    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    1 1/2 cups flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    3 tablespoons shortening
    1/2 cup hot tap water

    Place flour, salt and baking powder in a bag. Close and shake a few shakes to mix.

    Add shortening. Close bag and work with hands until mixture looks crumbly and there are no large pieces of shortening visible.

    Add the hot water. Knead in the bag until the dough is one large piece and the sides of the bag come clean. Take out of bag and divide into 4 pieces. Lay the bag on top of the pieces and let rest for 15 minutes.

    After the resting time, roll or pat the dough into 8"-10" circles. Place on a griddle or frying pan heated to medium or medium high and cook until dark brown spots appear. Turn and cook on the other side until brown.
