Yield: 12 - 24 sopapillas

1 1/2 cups Sugar
Place water in a large bowl and sprinkle the yeast over it and let sit to
proof. After about 20 minutes add the milk and butter to the proofed yeast and
stir together. Add the salt and begin adding the flour.
When the dough is about double in size punch it dough and roll out on a floured surface to about 1/4 inch thick. Then cut 2 to 4 inch triangles (you can make any shape you want but traditionally they are made in triangles). In a bowl mix the sugar and cinnamon together till incorporated and set aside.
In a fry pan or
deep fryer place
vegetable or canola oil and heat to about 350 F. Place the dough in there two at
a time and cook on each side for about 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown.
When desired color is reached remove from the oil and place into the sugar mix
and toss to coat. Continue doing this until all the sopapillas are cooked and
