DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium bowl, mix flour, salt and baking powder.
  • Cut in shortening with 2 knives (or you can use your fingers) until mixture resembles cornmeal. Stir in warm water until all ingredients are moist.
  • Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth, about 5 minutes. Cover dough with plastic wrap or a dry towel.
  • Let rest at least 30 minutes. For later use, dough may be placed in a plastic bag and refrigerated 24 hours.
  • Cut dough in half. On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough into a saucepan or deep fryer (I prefer to just use the counter).
  • Heat to 400 degrees F (205 C). Carefully drop dough squares 1 at a time into hot oil.
  • Cook until puffed and golden brown, turning once. If sopaipillas do not puff immediately, oil is not hot engouh. Drain cooked sopaipillas on paper towels.
  • Serve immediately with honey. Makes 35-40.
  • You can also roll dough into circles and cut them in half, or watever shape you'd like.
