Deep Fryer Sopaipillas


         vegetable oil
      1 cup all purpose flour
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/2 tsp. baking powder
1-1/2 tsp. nonfat dry milk
    1 tsp. vegetable shortening
   1/2 cup cold water


Heat oil in an electric deep fryer to 370°F - 380°F. Combine flour and next 4 ingredients in a food processor and pulse 3-4 times. With machine running, pour in water through feed tube and process about 15 seconds, or until ingredients begin to come together. Transfer mixture to a lightly floured work surface and mix by hand, adding more flour as needed, to make a soft dough.

Roll into a circle about 1/8 inch thick and cut each circle into 12 wedges. Add 2 or 3 at a time to fry basket. Lower into hot oil and fry 5-7 minutes, turning several times, until golden. Drain on absorbent paper and repeat with remaining sopaipillas. Serve with honey, syrup, guacamole or salsa.
