  • Ready In

  1. Heat 8 cups shortening in a deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in 2 tablespoons shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually stir in water just until dough pulls together. Divide dough into 4 pieces and form each piece into a ball. Roll the balls into 8 inch diameter circles. Cut each one into 8 wedges. In a large bowl, mix together the cinnamon and sugar. Set aside.
  3. Fry the wedges until they puff up and turn light brown. Drain briefly, roll in the cinnamon sugar and serve hot.

I made these the other day and they turned out great. I hate to see how a person such as "kmmishler" down there can mess up the rating for this. I also suppose her entire family has gone into ...

The 8 cups of shortening are for frying. Only 2 tablespoons actually go into the sopapillas.

Need to verify ingredients. Hard to believe it takes 8 cups of shortening to make 32 Sopapillas!
