Ingredients
  1. 5 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 5 teaspoons baking powder
  3. 1 teaspoon salt
  4. 2 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
  5. 5 tablespoons all-vegetable shortening
  6. 1 1/4 cups warm water
  7. Vegetable oil, for frying
  8. 1 cup sugar
  9. Honey
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until mixture is crumbly. Stir in 1 1/4 cups warm water.
  2. On a work surface, knead for 2 to 3 minutes or until mixture forms a smooth dough. Cover with plastic wrap, and let stand for 30 minutes.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/8-inch thickness, and cut into 3-inch squares.
  4. In a large Dutch oven, pour oil to a depth of 4 inches, and heat over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 380°.
  5. Fry dough squares, in batches, for 1 to 2 minutes per side or until puffed and golden brown. Let drain briefly on paper towels.
  6. In a shallow dish, stir together sugar and remaining 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Dredge hot sopapillas in sugar mixture to coat, and drizzle with honey. Serve immediately.
