  • Sopapillas


    2/3 cup whole milk
    2 tablespoons granulated sugar
    2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling
    3 tablespoons lard
    1 tablespoon baking powder 
    1 teaspoon kosher salt 
    Vegetable oil, for frying


    1 Cup Granulated Sugar
    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    Honey, for drizzling



Step 1

For the sopapillas: Heat the milk and sugar in a small saucepan over low heat until the sugar melts and the milk is warm to the touch.

Step 2

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a dough hook, add the flour, lard, baking powder and salt. Mix for 1 minute to incorporate the lard. With the machine running on medium, drizzle the warm milk mixture into the mixing bowl. Mix until a ball of dough forms. Cover with plastic wrap and chill the dough for at least 1 hour.

Step 3

When ready, heat 2 inches of vegetable oil to 385 degrees F in a Dutch oven. Line a baking sheet with paper towels.

Step 4

For the topping: Mix together the sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl; set aside.

Step 5

Dust your work surface with all-purpose flour and roll the dough out to a 6-by-12-inch rectangle. It should be about 1/8 inch thick. Cut the dough into 2-inch squares and fry in batches of 6 until golden brown, about 1 1/2 minutes per side.

Step 6

Using a spider, remove the hot sopapillas from the oil to the paper towel-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the sopapillas and toss to coat. Transfer to a serving platter and drizzle with honey. Serve warm.
