I have annoyed many a restaurant server, asking them about their Sopaipillas, when I see them on a menu.  Fried flour tortillas just don’t count.  These are good. :)


In medium mixing bowl, combine:

  • 2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon double acting baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt

Cut in 2 Tablespoons room temperature butter

Add 3/4 cup warm water

Knead gently to form a ball of dough, that has absorbed all the flour, from the bowl.

Cover and let stand 20 minutes.

Roll out on flour covered board, and cut with a pizza cutter into squares.


Fry in hot oil.  Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.  Serve warm with honey or agave nectar.

This recipe doubles nicely.
