Sopaipillas with Warm Honey Butter

My husband has become the official flour tortilla maker in our house. He has been striving for the perfect tortilla recipe and I think the one he's using now is pretty close. Ideally, they'd come out like the ones at Don Pablo's which my husband and I used to frequent on an almost weekly basis back before we moved! At Don Pablo's their sopaipilla dessert was phenomenal, so I decided to emulate it with my husband's tortilla dough.

  • Tortilla dough, rolled out into a tortilla (but not cooked)
  • Oil for frying
  • 4 Tbsp of Butter
  • 2 Tbsp of Honey (or to taste)
  • Powdered sugar

  1. In small saucepan, melt butter and add the honey. Taste it and add more honey (or more butter) as needed
  2. Fill a deep skillet with about 1/4 inch of vegetable oil for frying and heat to 350-375 degrees
  3. Carefully slide the tortilla dough round into the oil and fry until golden brown
  4. Remove tortilla to a paper towel
  5. Plate tortilla with honey butter and sprinkle powdered sugar on top
  6. This would be good with ice cream and/or cinnamon sugar as well!
