Sopapillas: A great ending to a Mexican dinner., April 4, 2004 - 11:06 AM
Reviewer: Mary Hoar from San Antonio, TX
I planned a Mexican dinner for my family, but wanted something special for dessert to keep in the theme of the Mexican dinner. I found your web site and tried the sopapilla recipe. It was a big hit!!! I put out melted butter, honey and powdered suger with cinnimon for everybody to do their own thing to taste. Thank you so much for a great recipe. I will use it again.
