They will look like flat peanuts, and are served as a snack or with cocktails, and like peanuts, once you start eating them you can't stop.

In a 1-quart bowl mix flour, salt, sugar, cayenne pepper and oil. Knead: together and add WATER, spoonful by spoonful, to form a stiff dough. Knead dough for 5 minutes longer.

Tear: off a piece the size of a golf ball.

Roll: it out with palms of hands on a lightly floured board into a long strip ½ inch thick.

Snip: into ½-inch pieces with scissors.

Spread: about the handful of the pieces on an ungreased 9-inch frying pan (or enough to cover bottom of pan). Cook over heat until uniformly light brown on all sides, stirring up once in a while as you go along.

Continue until all are light brown.

NOTES : For "teaspoon", the original recipe says tsb, whereas the "tablespoon" ingredients say Tbs...
