After I finished with the pot pies, there was just a little bit of dough left over. I hate wasting stuff. I'll save anything. So... what do I do with a little lump of pastry dough?
In case you aren't familiar with them (because the Pup had never had them before, so there must be more people out there who haven't), sopapillas are available at most Mexican restaurants. They're usually made of flour tortillas fried in a lightly buttered pan until crispy, sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon, then drizzled with butter and honey. I didn't have honey, but pancake syrup tastes almost as good. They're very light and flaky, not heavy in the slightest. As far as deserts go, they're one of the least guilty I can think of.
