Here's a recipe from my Texas roots. I heart me some true Mexican food and who can't resist a little something sweet?


3 c flour
3 t baking powder
2 t salt
1 T shortening
Honey (optional)

Sift flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in shortening then add lukewarm water to make a soft dough. Let rise 1 hour. Roll out ¼ to ½ inch thick. Cut squares about 3 inches. Fry dough. They should puff in the center.
After cooking and while hot, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mix, or powdered sugar, or dip in honey.
Butter and honey is also great added after cooking inside the puff.

  1. Made sopaipillas last night for dinner. I love them with honey or stuffed with beans, cheese and chili.
