Beat in water and salt.
Stir in flour working with hands if necessary.
Roll dough out on well-floured cloth.
Knead slightly until not sticky, but still soft.
Divide dough into 12 equal portions.
Roll each portion out on floured cloth to approximately 8 inch circles, (very thin) Heat liquid cooking oil to 375° in heavy skillet.
Gently place one circle of dough at a time in hot oil, frying only about 10-15 seconds per side.
When turning, and to remove, use tongs and be very careful as they break easily.
They should not be brown, but a golden yellow when removed.
Place confectioners' sugar in small strainer and gently sprinkle on both sides of elephant ears.
They may be drained first on paper towels if desired.
