Sopaipillas
Makes over 1 dozen, at least.

1 3/4 cups sifted flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp lard or shortening
2/3 cup water
oil or fat for deep frying

Begin heating the oil to 375 F. in a heavy saucepan, or use a deep
fryer. (Use a candy thermometer if you have one to guage temperature.)
Sift the pre-sifted flour, baking powder, and salt onto a pastry
board, or into a bowl. Cut in the lard or shortening and gradually
add the water until everything sticks together.

Knead the dough very briefly, cover it, and let it rest for 5
minutes. Lightly flour the board and, with a floured rolling pin,
roll out the dough into a very thin rectangle. Cut it into 3- inch
squares and drop them, a few at a time, into deep hot fat (375 F.).

Turn the squares as they cook, to make them puff evenly. Fry the
sopaipillas for about 5 minutes (I say 1 minute is enough) until
they are nicely browned on both sides. Drain on absorbant paper
and serve hot, with honey or syrup.
