Let's Make It
Combine flour and baking powder in large bowl. Cut in cream cheese with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Gradually add water, mixing after each addition until well blended. Shape into ball; knead on lightly floured surface 5 min. or until smooth and no longer sticky. Cover; let stand 10 min.
Divide dough in half. Roll half the dough into 12x10-inch rectangle on floured surface; cut into 12 squares. Cut each square diagonally in half. Repeat with remaining dough.
Heat 2 inches of oil in medium saucepan to 375°F on medium-high heat. Add dough pieces, in batches; cook 1 to 2 min. or until edges of sopaipillas are golden brown, turning once. Remove from pan with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels.
Dust with powdered sugar or cinnamon sugar before serving.
Serve drizzled with honey.
