Homemade Sopapillas

1 package active dry yeast

1 1/2 cups warm water

1 tablespoon of butter, melted

1 tablespoon of sugar

4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon salt

vegetable oil




Mix the yeast with the warm water(temp on package, use a candy thermometer) and let it sit for five minutes. Combine the flour and salt. Add the butter and sugar to the yeast/water mixture and then slowly add to the flour and salt. Knead for two minutes, until dough is smooth and elastic. Rise in a covered, greased bowl for one hour or until dough is doubled in size. After dough has risen, punch it down, and on a floured surface, roll it out into a 1/4-inch thick rectangle. Using a pizza cutter, cut out 3 inch squares, and then cut squares on the diagonal into triangles. Heat up oil to 375 degrees. Fry triangles of dough a few at a time in the oil for one minute on each side, it’s easier to use a fry daddy, or you can use a big pot that has at least a few inches of oil in it. The dough should puff when it hits the oil. Drain, and then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Serve hot with honey.
