<p>Thongs are definitely more exciting, but less apt to get burned using tongs!</p>
Thanks for the comment. I always appreciate a little humor when pointing out a necessary correction. Have a great day~<br>sunshiine~
Maybe this will upload now, the honey is from SD, a beekeeper brings his bees to Sulphur Springs, Tx down the road from us, and we buy his wonderful stuff. After we had the wonderful sopapillas in San Luis, I came home &amp; ordered these 2 little pitchers from www.LaPerlaPottery.etsy.com Thanks for the memories and the recipe, I'm through searching!
Beautiful picture! I love it! Thanks so much for sharing your experience and the beautiful story! How precious! So happy you found a great recipe to try! Have a splendorous night! <br>sunshiine
thank you so much, your instructables are awesome!!
I embrace your compliment, thanks! <br>sunshiine
thank you Sunshiine my hubby said vote for you! I tried to upload a photo for you but it wouldn't let me :( I will try to send you a pic some other way. This is a much better recipe than the other 2 I tried. I mixed cinnamon w my honey &amp; warmed it together. Delicious! We thought we were in San Luis for a moment! lol
Thank you for sharing this comment! I will try it with cinnamon and honey!
trying this tonight!!!!!! we do mission work in Mex and it is hard to find anything comparable in North Texas- <br>also ate the best we had ever found 2 yrs ago at a little Mexican restaurant in San Luis, Colorado when we visited the Stations of the Cross. They were irregular-shaped and came with little ceramic pitchers of warm honey &amp; melted REAL butter- wonder if that place is still there. It is such a small town I'm sure that was the only Mex place. Actually maybe the only restaurant lol
Thanks so much for trying it out! Have a splendid week!<br>sunshiine
Hello Sunshine, Thank you for this recipe and the photos, looks so delicious! I just want to add a little story here. When I saw your photos, I immediately recognized it as something we do back home. Where I come from we cook exactly the same pastries or Sopapillas. Somehow the pioneers who brought this recipe to your and my country came from the same place of origin a few hundred years ago. The recipe is the same in general, but people vary it to get different results. My family love the one&rsquo;s that pop-up and become hollow inside. We usually then cut the one side open and fill them with grind curried meat or as you mentioned, some sweet stuff like syrup or honey. I am going to try your version!<br>Kind regards<br>ED
Somehow I missed this comment! Thanks for sharing! I hope they turned out wonderful! <br>Sunshiine
It sounds like your talking about pop-overs :)
Mine turned out more like doughnuts, but they were still super good.
Yummy yummy Oooooooooooooh so yummy !!!&hellip;<br><br>Thank you so much !
Thank you for commenting! Have a wonderful relaxing weekend! Sunshiine
Oh Sis, these are one of my favorites. Your photo looks good enough to lick off this page.
They were! Thanks! Come on over and I'll make some for you.
Those look delicious. I can tell by the color you put some diligence and love into cooking these. I've only seen them white bit I'd give these golden critters a try.
Oh my goodness onrust you must try them! They are delicious! Thanks for commenting and have a beautiful day!<br>Sunshiine
Looks so tasty!<br /> <br /> (Did you know that yeast converting sugars into CO<sub>2</sub> is a <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Weekly-Make-It-Challenge-Chemical-Reactions/">chemical reaction</a>?)
Thank you so much! I was trying to dream up an Instructable for that contest! Your my hero! Have a splendorous month!<br>Sunshiine
Gosh that looks delicious! Looks like the pastries, a bit, from Princess and the Frog. I love fried bread and sugar! I will have to give this a shot.
They were sooooooooo good! Thanks so much for commenting and have a super day!<br>Sunshiine
