Sopapillas
The person who shared the recipe said it was her mother's recipe. You will note that it uses the biscuit-type, baking powder-raised dough.
Ingredients:

2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt (level)
1 teaspoon sugar
1 Tablespoon lard (use shortening if you don't have lard)
warm water
oil for deep frying
Honey for serving

Instructions:

Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
With a pastry blender or two butter knives, cut in lard until small and crumbly.
Add enough hot water to make a dough like that of a pie crust.
Cover and let dough stand at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
Roll out enough dough to make about 2-4 triangles at a time.
Cut the triangle out and place in hot oil.
When one side is brown flip it over to cook the other side.
Drain on paper towel.
Serve warm with honey or cinnamon sugar.

Posted by LuAnn There is an easy variety made from frozen bread dough: The best sopapillas castilliano I ever had... (were made from) traditional recipes using yeast instead of baking powder and were shaped differently. The dough was rolled out to about 1/4" thick and cut into 4-inch squares. Then, the dough was folded over to make a triangle. At this point you press the open ends together to seal the edges of "the little pillow." Fry them as usual on each side until light brown and the insides fill with the hot gases puffing out even more making neat little balloons. Then, I think they brushed with egg whites and baked a little bit more making the most golden crescent / dinner roll like crust.
Served with butter and honey they were the desert with after-dinner coffee.
