Ingredients for Sopapillas

1 cup All-Purpose Flour, bleached
2 tsp Baking powder
1 tsp Salt
1 tbsp Sugar
1 tbsp Vegetable Shortening
1/3 cup Hot Water
1-2 tbsp Flour, if needed

Method for Sopapillas

• Put flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and shortening in a mixing bowl. Use your fingers or a pastry blender to thoroughly combine and evenly distribute shortening.
• Add hot water and stir with a fork until mixture forms a dough. If dough is too dry to mold or knead, add a bit more water. If dough seems too wet add 1-2 tablespoons flour.
• Knead a couple times, then place in a plastic bag and let rise 1 hour in a warm place.
• Lightly flour work surface and roll dough in to a rectangle about 1/8 to1/4 inch thick. If the dough seems too elastic to roll easily cover and let rest a few minutes more, then roll again.
• Fold the dough in half and roll the rectangle again. Cut the dough into 3-by-4 inch rectangles.
• Heat at least 5 inches of oil in a 3-quart sauce pan or deep-fryer to 350 to 360. Fry 1 or 2 at a time, spooning hot oil over the top to encourage puffing.
• Drain on paper towels. Immediately dust with powdered sugar and serve with honey.
