Similar to the French beignet.

Mix and proof in small bowl for about 10 minutes:
2 T yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1 T sugar

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 t salt
1 cup boiling water

3 beaten eggs
2 cups flour
yeast, water, sugar mixture from above

Beat all ingredients until smooth. Stir in 2 1/2 cups more flour. Let rise one hour. Roll out 1/2-1/8-inch thick. Cut into pieces. Or just pull off some dough and shape into a ball by turning inside out. Deep fry in 4-inches of lard or oil that is heated to 400 degrees. Spoon oil over the top as this will help them rise. Turn once. Fry until puffy, golden and slightly crusty. Drain well. Serve with honey butter or sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar or dust with powdered sugar. Can coat sopapillas with cinnamon and sugar or powdered sugar by dropping into bag with desired coating. If needed, refrigerate unused dough.
Honey Butter

1/2 cup butter
1/4 t vanilla
1 egg yolk (optional)
1 cup honey

Whip softened butter. Add vanilla and egg yolk. Add honey gradually while whipping. Beat for 20 min. Makes 1 cup.
