I'm not sure how accurate this is, but here's one, Soapilla.  For some reason, they spelled it differently.

Soften yeast in lukewarm water. Set aside.
Combine milk, sugar and salt. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Stir in butter. Allow to cool until lukewarm.
Stir in beaten egg and yeast mixture. Gradually add flour.
Work with hands if mixture becomes too thick to stir. Cover dough with a damp cloth and allow to rise until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours.
Punch down, turn out onto a lightly floured board, knead briefly until dough is smooth.
Cover and let rest for 15 minutes. Roll to about 1/2 inch thick square and cut with a 2 inch cookie cutter.

Cook sopapillas a few at a time, browning on one side, and turning only once. They will puff up.

That's not a sopapilla. That's more like a cake.

Funny, I had a sopapilla this morning.  The Mexican guy at our feria (farmer's market) was there this morning with tacos and conchas and sopapillas.  I had two tacos, one braised pig cheeks and the other ears and something or other with chile verde.  Then I came back for a sopapilla.  He was frying them in a big pot of lard.  They were heavenly and I'll probably die sooner than I would have if I'd stuck to fruit for breakfast, but it was worth it.  

Good luck with the sopapillas.  They're pretty easy to make.  Oil works well...but lard kicks butt!
