Hojuelas - Fried Puff Squares

1/2 cup (1/4 lb.) butter
3 cups flour
1 t. salt
1 T. sugar
5 T. orange juice
3 T. ice cold water
cooking oil
sugar to sprinkle

Mix the butter and flour with two forks. When well mixed, add the salt, sugar, juice and water and blend. Without touching the dough with your fingers, roll it out and fold it in half. Repeat this operation two more times and place in the refrigerator until chilled. Roll out very thin and cut into diagonal strips. Make a slit in the center of each one. Deep fry in hot cooking oil until golden. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle sugar generously over the squares. Makes about 2 dozen.
