Easy Baked Sopapillas are light on the inside and crisp on the outside! Rolled in melted vanilla butter and cinnamon sugar these sopapillas are fun and mouthwatering!
We go out for Mexican food at least once a week and I think that I always look forward to the sopapillas at the end of the meal the most! They're just a little crispy on the outside and soft and airy in the center, and who can resist a good drizzle of honey? Cinnamon sugar desserts are a fave of mine and if you've made my super popular Donut Muffins, they're probably a favorite of yours too. I think you guys are going to be super pleased with my homemade version of this dessert. It takes only a handful of ingredients that you probably already have....and if not, please run to the store and get yourself some puff pastry right now!
How to Make Easy Baked Sopapillas:
- First, grab your puff pastry out of the freezer. Thaw it out according to package directions. This basically consists of removing it from the package and paper wrapping then thawing on the counter for about 20 minutes.
- Preheat your oven and lay the thawed pastry out on your cutting board that you've sprinkled with a bit of flour.
- Use a knife or a pizza cutter to slice the puff pastry into 9 pieces.
- Lay the pastry squares out in a single layer on a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper or a silpat.
- Bake in your preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until lightly golden. Keep an eye on them at 15 minutes, you don't want the bottom to burn!
- While the pastry is baking, melt your butter in a medium bowl and combine the cinnamon sugar in a second bowl.
- Remove the cooked puff pastry squares from the oven and let them cool for a minute or two, until you can handle them. Dip them in the melted butter, then roll in cinnamon/sugar. Drizzle with honey if desired!
