My nana would make this desert that was made from balls of dough rolled out into a tortilla shape and then would fry them. She had large round tins pans with towels at the botten and would set them tilted up to drain them. While cooling these wonderful crisped up tortillas, she would then make a syrup in a large round pan made of brown sugar, water, tomatillos, salt, would bring these ingredients to a boil, then cool off for a while. she would then get the fried tortillas and dip them in this wonderful gooey syrup, return them to a fresh pan without the towels at the bottom to let them cool. After she was done making dozens upon dozens of these, we would then eat to our hearts desire. She would count what was left, pack them to take to church the following day (Sunday) to donate for our Christmas/New Year party. I will never forget this tradition she instilled in our famil. I miss and love my grandmother (nana) so much and am so thankful to have such a wonderful person in my life. She is the one who inspired the cook/baker in me. Thank you for letting me share my story with you!

Ooohh, sopapillas. I haven't made them in years. This recipe does sound a bit like them, except my recipe puffed up when fried. Then you add honey when eating.
