Mexican.Chef's picture
Ingredients
  All purpose flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Baking powder 2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Shortening 2 Tablespoon
  Warm water 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
  Vegetable oil 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Directions

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.
Cut in the shortening until the flour resembles coarse meal.
Add the water, a little at a time, until the dough is moist and can be gathered into a ball.
Knead it a couple of times, cover it with a towel, and let it sit for 30 minutes.
In a deep pot or fryer, heat the oil to 400°F.
On a lightly floured board, roll out the dough until it forms a rectangle 1/4 inch thick.
Cut into rectangles about 2 by 3 inches.
Place the sopaipillas, 3 or 4 at a time, in the hot oil and spoon a little oil over the top of each to start them puffing.
When they have browned on one side, 20 to 30 seconds, turn them over and brown the other side.
Turn them only once.
Remove them and drain them on paper towels.
