Indian Fry Bread

I don't normally deep-fat fry anything, but I was going through my recipe box recently and found this recipe from the 5th grade!  Yes -- I saved a recipe from 5th grade because I liked it so much.  There was an American-Indian boy in our class, Jason, and one day, his mom came and taught us about Indians and made us Indian fry bread.

4 C. flour
2 t. salt (I might use 1.5 t. next time)
1 T baking powder
water (I used around 1.5 cups)

Mix the dry ingredients, then add the water to make a stiff dough.  Knead until the dough is stiff and elastic (I just used my mixer).  Roll/smash the dough into thin patties (the thinner the better because then they puff up into little UFOs and you can fill them with honey butter).  Fry in 1/2" grease (I used veg. oil) until golden brown.  I used a cast iron pan and had my temperature on medium-low.  We topped our bread with BOTH cinnamon sugar AND honey butter.  My husband about died when he ate his last bite loaded with honey butter.
