Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl stir together flour, baking powder, salt, and cream of tartar. Cut in shortening until thoroughly combined. Make a well in center of flour mixture.
  2. In a small mixing bowl combine eggs and milk. Add to flour mixture all at once. Stir just until dough clings together.
  3. On a lightly floured surface knead dough about 2 minutes or until smooth. Divide dough into 24 equal portions; shape each portion into a ball. Cover dough and let rest for 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. In a heavy 10-inch skillet heat 3/4 inch oil to 375 degrees F. Meanwhile, on a lightly floured surface, roll each ball into a 4-inch circle.
  5. Fry 1 circle at a time in hot oil for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes on each side or until golden. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with sugar or Cinnamon Sugar, or drizzle with Cinnamon-Sugar Syrup. Makes 24 bunuelos.

Cinnamon Sugar (Optional):

  1. In a mixing bowl stir together 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
