Makes about 30

Ingredients:

· 2 cups (454 grams)of sifted all purpose flour

· 2 tablespoons ( 9.5 grams) of shorting or margarine

· ¾ cups(about 180 milliliters) of water

· 1 tablespoon(about 13.4 grams) of baking powder

· 1 teaspoon(about 4.7 grams) of salt

· Corn oil

· Syrup or honey, or cinnamon and powdered sugar

Directions:

Step 1: the first step in Goshen’s sopaipillas is to put the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Lightly rub in the shortening or margarine, using your fingertips, until the mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs. Gradually stir in the water using a fork. Do this until the mixture clumps together to form a soft dough.

Step 2: Shape the dough into a ball, then turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead very gently until smoothed. The next step in Goshen’s sopaipillas is to roll out the dough thinly into a 15 x 18 (38 x 46 cm) rectangles. Using a sharp knife carefully cut into about 30 3 inch squares.

Tip: for a decorative edge, you could use a pastry wheel to cut out he squares.

Step 3: heat the oil to 375 F (180 Celsius) or until a cube of day old bread browns in 30-60 seconds. After baking the square, fry the puffs, a few at a time, in the oil. As they puff up, turn over to cook the other side. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

Serve warm with the syrup, or honey, or covered in cinnamon and powdered sugar. Then you are ready to enjoy Goshen’s sopaipillas.
