Sopaipillas for GrrreeekgirlFrom ttaaccoo 8 years ago
How to make it
- Sift flour , baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl. Add shortening and cut in coarsely; then add cold water gradually. Mix just enough to hold together like a pie crust. Turn out on lightly-floured board and knead gently until smooth. Cover and let dough rest for 5 minutes. Roll out into a rectangle about 12 by 15 " (dough should be very thin, 1/16 inch -- 1/8 inch thick). Cut into either 3 inch squares or 2X3 inches.
- Drop a few in to deep very hot oil. At first turn squares over 3 or 4 times to make them puff evenly. Fry about 2 to 3 mins on each side, or until golden brown. The sopaipillas will puff up like "little pillows".
- Serve hot with honey , and napkins.
