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.
1 package active dry yeast
1 1/14 cup warm water (105-115 degrees)
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. melted butter or margarine
1 egg beaten
2 2/3 to 3 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
Oil for deep frying
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.
