~Crescent Sopapillas!

So here’s a little tid-bit about me: I have an itty-bitty identity crisis..yep, I do!  At least when it comes to my culture.  See, I lived in Connecticut until I was 12, and then moved to NM, where I’ve called home for (not telling) years..lol!  ;)

Sooo, I feel like the Southwest is in my blood, especially when it comes to the food here!  I LOVE it!  However, I wouldn’t know how to make homemade Tortillas, Red Chile sauce..or Sopapillas if my life depended on it!  I’m just too white..haha!

So when I crave something like Sopapillas at home, I’ve always been S.O.L..until now!  But..my laziness has come through for me yet again!  I grabbed a tube of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls (already the perfect Sopapilla shape)..and fried those babies up!  :)

That’s it..BOOM! ~instant Sopapillas!  Who says laziness doesn’t pay off?! Now anyone can enjoy the hot, crispy, sweet, dripping in honey Sopapilla experience, anytime..anywhere!  These Crescents are almost meant to become Sopapillas, they’re Gor-Jus!

Trust me, I’ve had my fair share of Sopas and you can’t tell the difference..I promise!  Such a great side kick to a fabulous Mexican meal.  Give them a try, and in a matter of minutes, you’ll be dripping in honey and loving it!  :)

 

What you’ll need:

1 tube of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls

Approx. 4 cups of oil for frying

Powdered Sugar/Honey/Cinnamon Sugar..optional

Directions:

In a medium pot, heat up your oil..it should be about 3″ deep, with lots of room for expansion when it gets hot!

Pop open the tube of Crescents..

Have a mini-heart attack when it pops!  ;)

Slice them at their perforation to separate

Fry them up one at a time, until they’re golden on both sides.  You can flip them carefully with a fork or some lonely old Chopsticks.

Drain them on some paper towel & let them cool slightly on a rack before you tear into them!  :)

But..definitely serve them warm, with a drizzle of Honey..

..and some Cinnamon Sugar..oh and some Powdered Sugar too!  Then sink your teeth into the easiest & tastiest Sopapilla ever!  ~Enjoy!  :)

    • OMG, they are like the best thing EVER! Here in the south they are a dessert staple. Besides the sugar, cinnamon, and honey, I add butter to my hot sopapillas. It’s down right heaven!

  11. Oh my, what a boon to have with my Creamy Burrito Casserole meal. Thanks so much for sharing. I had remembered having them at a restaurant in New Orleans, where when you wanted more sopillias, you lifted a little flag on your table. I have thought of them over the years. MMMMMM! Thanks for sharing.

  17. Do you put honey in the crescent before you roll them up and fry them?

    Reply

  19. I must have done something wrong. I found this recipe because I’d always wondered what would happen if I deep fried crescent rolls. I actually used a deep fryer. Could that have been the problem? My oil was at 375 and was clean. They fluffed up nice while cooking but instantly became saturated with oil. I cooked them about 2 mins per side. They came out golden, but flattened and too greasy to eat.

    A lot of comments here from people who were about to try them. Anyone else have results to report — os suggestions?

    • I’d say that your Oil was too hot, AND you left them in too long. They will puff up super quickly and then you need to take them out, as soon as they’re golden on both sides..drain them before eating! ~So sorry you lost a batch! Give them another try and follow my method. Let me know! :)
