Yield 16



1 cup white corn masa flour

1 cup Pillsbury BEST All Purpose Flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons All-Vegetable Shortening

1 cup warm water

Pure Corn Oil, for deep frying


6 tablespoons sugar

3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Powdered sugar



Step 1

COMBINE masa flour, wheat flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Cut in shortening using pastry blender until pea-sized chunks are formed. Add water to flour mixture until dough comes together to form a ball. Cover and let stand 20 minutes.

Step 2

ROLL dough on a lightly floured surface to make a 12 x 12-inch square, about 1/4-inch thick. Cut into 16 squares (3 x 3-inches each).

Step 3

HEAT corn oil, 2 to 3-inches deep in a 4-quart saucepan or deep fryer to 375°F. Fry 2 to 3 sopaipillas at a time in hot oil, turning once, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.

Step 4

COMBINE sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside. Toss or sprinkle with cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar. Serve warm with warmed honey, if desired.
