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.
