When I searched out this recipe I was trying to duplicate the sopapillas served at a Mexican restaurant chain called Don Pablos. I've had "real" sopapilla's in Mexico and all over the west/southwest and their version is the only kind I like. I guess it's my junk food upbringing, but this dough was a big disappointment for me. It was so bland no amount of powdered sugar, honey, honey butter, vanilla ice cream, or cinnamon (yep, I tried them all) could save it for me. They prepared and cooked just as was promised. I didn't have any problems with puffing etc... They were just so bland I felt like I was eating vanilla ice cream and communion wafers. I realize bland pastries and crusts compliment sweet sauces and filings, but my palette wasn't having it. So if you're like me and you prefer glazed donuts to cake ones, cookie crumb crusts over traditional lard ones, and cool whip over meringue then make a funnel cake instead.
