Sopaipillas , Cuisine of Chile
Crispy & Puffy ! Taste like Churros! Both are originated from Chile, a fried pastry , and a type of sweet bread too! It tastes like doughnut too. (speak of doughnut, today I m supposed to use this Taiwanese Lady's recipe, and it didnt work, I trashed her recipe to the bin already! See, this is the problem with bloggers, some R honest, some R just... sigh..)
my honey is arriving today. :D And this Heinz honey has its own story too!
ok back to my sopaipillas - it means, fried dough sweetened with honey.
Sopaipillas usually eat with cinnamon sugar/powered sugar/honey.
13/4 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons shortening
2/3 cup milk or water
Combing the dry ingrediens , cut in shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, toss with a fork until mixture holds together. On a lightly floured surface, knead dough for 1-2 minures or until smooth ( U can add 1-2 Tablespoons of flour if too solf). Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Roll out 1/4 inch thickness, cut with a cookie cutter. Then Fry them for 1-2 minutes or until golden brown and puffed.
Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with powdered sugar / honey and serve immediately.
This little puff so cute! like a fried scone! :D
