Makes 8  medium Sopapillas

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup warm water
3 tablespoons olive oil

2+ tablespoons butter

1) In a small bowl combine some sugar and cinnamon. You'll need about 1/2 cup sugar and a tiny bit of cinnamon - you can always add more if you want. Set aside.

2)In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Stir in oil then water.

3)Turn dough onto a floured surface; knead 5-12 times. Divide dough into 8 portions. On that same lightly floured surface, roll each portion into circle - make sure you roll them very thin or they will be too much like bread and not a tortilla. {You can use the lid to a pan to cut out a perfect circle in the dough.}

4)In a large nonstick skillet heat 2 tablespoons of butter. Once butter is hot, cook tortillas for about 1 minute on each side or until lightly browned. Repeat process until all the tortillas are cooked.

5) Sprinkle both sides of the tortillas with the sugar & cinnamon mixture. Then I drizzled some honey on top.

Note: Serve warm. You can can put powdered sugar, honey, whipped cream, cherries, chocolate syrup, pretty much anything that sounds good on them :) Enjoy!!
