Yeast Sopapillas (Spanish) Recipe

  • 3 cups lukewarm water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 package dry yeast (1 T. bulk)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 tablespoons Crisco shortening
  • 5 1/2 cups flour
  • Oil, for frying
Add sugar to water. Sprinkle yeast in sugar water and let stand until dissolved. Add salt to Crisco and 1 cup of flour. Mix thoroughly. Add water mixture. Continue adding flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition, until dough is no longer sticky. Knead 5 minutes. Rub dough with a small amount of Crisco, cover, and let rise for 1 hour. Roll walnut-sized amounts of dough 1/8" thick, approximately 4" in diameter. Fry in deep fat or oil until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels and serve hot. Serves 10 to 12 (One-half recipe is plenty for 5 or 6 people.) You can serve them with honey, powdered sugar, granulated sugar or syrup. We like them with thick chili beans with shredded colby or sour cream on top. Also could have shredded lettuce and diced tomatoes, if desired.
