Sopaipilla Recipe

As the holidays approach, we wanted to share a family recipe from someone from the Friday family.

This recipe comes from Delsa Chavez, Office Assistant in Alamosa. Sopaipillas are a type of fried pastry, commonly found in Latin American Countries. They are a tasty dessert, served best with honey or other sweet toppings.

We hope you can share this recipe with your family this holiday season.

Dissolve yeast in water. Add sugar, salt, butter/margarine, and egg. Stir in enough flour to make a soft dough, for several minutes. Let rise until it doubles in size, about 20 to 30 minutes. Roll out dough to 1/4" thickness. Drop into hot oil and fry briefly until brown. Drain on a paper towel.
