Sopapillas, anyone?

Does anyone have a great recipe for sopapillas?
*Hope I'm spelling it right*

I've always loved them, and I have seen a few mixes, but would like to make them the real way.
Also, anyone have the recipe for those stuffed with seasoned beef? Had 'em quite a few times, years ago, before a favorite restaurant closed.
Thanks so much. :D

INGREDIENTS:
8 cups shortening for frying
4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons shortening
1 cup water
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup white sugar


DIRECTIONS:
Heat 8 cups shortening in a deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Cut in 2 tablespoons shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually stir in water just until dough pulls together. Divide dough into 4 pieces and form each piece into a ball. Roll the balls into 8 inch diameter circles. Cut each one into 8 wedges. In a large bowl, mix together the cinnamon and sugar. Set aside.
Fry the wedges until they puff up and turn light brown. Drain briefly, roll in the cinnamon sugar and serve hot

1 pkg active dry yeast
1 1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cup all purpose flour
1 each oil
1/4 cup warm water (110)
3 tablespoon lard or shortening
2 tablespoon sugar
1 cup whole wheat flour

In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. In another bowl combine milk, lard, salt and sugar. Heat to 110 degrees and add to dissolved yeast. Beat in 3 cups of the all purpose flour and all of the whole wheat flour. Add abut 1/2 c all purpose flour and mix until a stiff sticky dough forms. Place dough on a floured board and knead, adding more flour as needed, until dough is smooth and nonsticky. Place doug in a greased bowl turning over to grease top. Cover and let stand at room temp. 1 hour. Punch dough down. The dough may be coverec and chilled as long as overnight. Knead dough on alightly floured board to expel air. Roll dough out, a portion at a time, to slightly less than 1/8" thick. Cut in 2"X 5" rectangles or 3" squares for appetizers. Place on lightly floured pans and lightly cover. If you work quickly you can let cut sopaipillas stay at room temp up to 5 min; otherwise, refrigerate them until all are ready to fry. In a deep wide frying pan or kettle heat 1 1/2 - 2 inches oil to 350 on a deep fat frying thermometer. Fry 2 or 3 at a time. When the bread begins to puff, gently push the bread into the hot oil several times to help it puff more evenly. Turn several times and cook just until pale gold on both sides, 1-2 minutes total. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately or place in a warm oven until all are fried. Or if made ahead, cool, cover and chill or freeze. To reheat, bake uncovered in a 300 oven, turnig once, just until warm, 5-8 min. Do not overheat or they will become hard.Makes 2 dozen large sopaipillas or about 4 dozen small ones.

Yield: 12 servings

Now, does anyone have the recipe for the Honey-Butter sauce that Don Pablos uses for their Sopapillas?
