Mexican Beignets Recipe
Sopaipillas, also commonly spelled sopapilla or sopaipa, is a traditional sweet fried pastry. These pastry pockets closely resemble beignets.
1. Powdered Sugar Powder sugar is a fantastic combination and is one of my favorites.
2. Honey Honey and sopaipillas make a fantastic combination, especially if they’re still hot and slightly crispy on the outside. It adds a hint of sweetness and can be served inside, on the side, or drizzled on top.
3. Cinnamon-Sugar Cinnamon sugar is a gently sweet and delicious combination. Just combine 1/2 cup sugar with 2 Tbsp of cinnamon and mix it well.
– You have to rub the shortening into the flour mixture. – Avoid using too much water which will make the dough sticky and very difficult to work with. – While portioning your dough, keep the already-shaped pieces under a damp cloth.
