- Mix flour and shortening and add in water. Blend like bread or possibly tortilla dough.
- Let sit for about 20 min, covered. Shape into quarter size balls, and let sit 20 min more. Roll out very thin, pulling with hands if necessary. If dough is sticky, sprinkle flour on the rolling area. In a frying pan place 1 inch of oil and allow it to get very warm. Place bunuelo in pan, let brown to a golden on each side. Remove and quickly sprinkle sugar and cinnamon mix on both sides. Don't cover the bunuelos or possibly they will get soggy.
