Sharing my favorite sopapillas today!  My Homemade Sopapilla Recipe is one of our favorite desserts to make as a family. Warm fried dough with melted butter, honey and powdered sugar!

I’ve been looking forward to sharing my sopapilla recipe for weeks now. Let me start by saying I know people call these all kinds of different names. It kind of depends where you grew up! I’ve heard people call them scones, fry bread and sopapillas. I am not partial, I’ll call them anything, lol! I remember as a kid having warm sopapillas at a Mexican restaurant we went to and it was my favorite part of the meal!
