- 4 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 4 Tablespoons shortening
- 1-1/2 cups warm water
Combine dry ingredients in a medium-size bowl and cut in shortening. Make a well in center of dry ingredients. Add water to dry ingredients and work into a dough. Knead dough until smooth, cover, and set aside for 20 minutes. Heat 2 inches of shortening in a heavy pan over medium-high heat. Roll dough to a 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured board. Cut dough into 4-inch squares and fry until golden on both sides, turning once. (If shortening is sufficiently hot, the sopapillas will puff and become hollow shortly after being placed in the shortening.) Drain sopapillas on absorbent towels. Serve with honey.
Makes: 4 dozen sopapillas
