“I only saw sopapilla cheesecake on here. Crazy! Here's a sopapilla recipe. Serving size is approximate(I haven't tried it yet) Passive cook time is for rising.”
1hr 15mins
3-4 dozen triangles

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dissolve the yeast in water, then add milk, egg, honey or sugar, salt, and flour.
  2. Knead. Let rise until double, which will take about 1/2 hour. Punch down and place in refrigerator until ready to use.
  3. When ready to use, roll dough out very thin and cut into triangles and fry in oil a few at a time, completely immersed (this causes it to puff up).
  4. You can top them many different ways. My favorite way is how the local restaurants do, with a scoop of ice cream, and honey and cinnamon on top.
