These were very good sopapillas. I followed the recipe exactly, and they puffed up when fried and tasted great. However, i strongly recommend rolling your dough very thin and making 100% sure that you oil is at 375 degrees when you start frying! The first batch of sopapillas i made were really doughy and tough because i rolled the dough a 1/4 inch thick. Rolling the dough much thinner (1/8 inch thick) made them puff up and become flaky. Also some of the more negative reviews said that the sopapilla itself was bland. Due to this i added a hint of cinnamon to the dough, but other than that i don't recommend putting anything else in them. Sopapilla dough is not meant to be sweet by itself. If you prefer sweet sopapillas i recommend drizzling a little honey on top of them and then dusting them with cinnamon/sugar. Over all this recipe turned out great for me. I hope my tips are useful :D
