Sift flour, salt and baking powder together, chop in shortening but not too finely. Remove two-thirds of a cup of the mixture. Add enough water to remaining flour mixture to make a soft dough. Roll out on floured cloth and pile the cup of dry mixture in the center; fold over and roll carefully. Continue folding in and rolling until no dry flour appears. Roll up and place in the icebox until ready to use.
