Sift flour, baking powder, and salt in mixing bowl. Add shortening, cut in like you would for a pie crust. Add cold water, gradually. Mix just enough to hold together. Take out of mixing bowl and place on a floured board. Knead until very smooth.
Cover and let dough rest for 5 minutes. Then, on a floured board, roll out to about 1/3 inch thick and cut into 3 inch squares. Drop sopapillas into deep fryer, 1 or 2 at a time, and when they surface, fan with the hot oil until dough begins to rise. Turn sopapillas over. When the sopapillas are light golden brown, remove from fire and drain.
