"Also referred to as Latin or Spanish Corn Fritters, can be prepared with or without cheese. This version is Puerto Rican style. These deep fried corn meal sticks are crunchy on the outside and buttery sweet on the inside and are great for brunch, as a dinner appetizer, or as a snack at anytime of the day. These can also be prepared cheese-filled; just add a little piece of your favorite cheese inside your shape before frying. Yum!" — Marisa Nicholls

I've always wanted to learn how to make sorullos, and this recipe was Great. Now I don't have to wait to visit my mom to have sorullos!
I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS RECIPE FOR YEARS!
Ohhh how these take me back! My father used to make these for the family when I was a little girl. I couldn't stop eating these!! These are perfect! THANKS FOR POSTING THIS!!
Absolutely fabulous!! I have been making sorullitos for years and experimented with the proportions with varying results, so I wanted to try this recipe. I am very happy to report that the particular ratio of ingredients here is SPOT ON. If you are looking for a sorullito that is crunchy outside and tender soft on the inside, with a taste on the sweeter side, THIS IS IT!!! (but of course you can reduce the sugar and increase the salt a bit if you want it to have more of a savory taste). I did put a stick of extra sharp cheddar cheese inside of each piece for an extra YUMMMM Thanks for the recipe Marisa!!!
