Sopaipillas

So our Mexican feast had to have a Mexican dessert.  I didn't want to do flan so the next best thing was sopaipillas.  Depending on where you go to eat Mexican food you could get different sopaipillas. Some are thin and crispy and others are puffs of dough that are somewhat hollow inside for the honey.
I like mine with just drizzle of honey on top.
Very easy to make.  But this recipe makes a lot so feel free to half the recipe.
4 cups all purpose flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1 Tablespoon salt
1 Tablespoon sugar
Whisk the dry ingredients together.
Add 2 Tablespoons oil
Add 1 1/3 cups warm water (around 105-110 degrees)
Then let the mixer do the work. Let mix for about 2 minutes.
Then turn out on a lightly floured surface.
Cut in half.
Seal in zip lock bags to let rest for a little while.  I mixed these up before dinner and let them rest between time.
Heat the oil and take out one half.  No flour on the surface.
Roll it out.
Cut into pieces.
Drop in hot oil.
They will puff up and turn golden brown. 
     
Serve with honey or powdered sugar.
