Ingredients

2 C. sifted flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 eggs
Enough water to make medium dough
1 1/2 T. shortening
1 tsp. salt
2 T. sugar

Method
  • Sift all dry ingredients together. Cut in the shortening. Add water and make into dough. Let rest 15 minutes. Eggs may be omitted if you desire.
  • Roll out dough about 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into 3-inch rectangular shapes. Fry in grease at 375°F until golden brown; then turn them over. They puff up quite a bit. Serve warm with honey, honey butter or use the desired filling.

Makes 24

Pineapple Filling:

2 T. cornstarch
2 1/2 T. sugar
1 (4 oz.) can crushed pineapple
Confectioners' sugar

In a saucepan, combine cornstarch and sugar; stir in pineapple. Cook mixture over medium heat, stirring until it boils. Continue stirring constantly while it boils for 1 minute. Cool slightly. While sopaipillas are still hot, make a slit along one long side and one short side with a sharp knife. Gently lift top and fill with 1 tablespoon of warm filling. Replace top and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar. Serve warm.

Honey Butter:

1/2 C. butter (at room temperature)
1/4 C. honey

With a mixer, combine butter and honey until well blended. Refrigerate the honey butter if you don't plan to use it within a few hours. Return the mixture to room temperature before using.
