|EVERY FEW MINUTES|
|BUNUELOS (FRIED SWEET PUFFS)|
3 1/3 c. regular all-purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tbsp. sugar
1/4 c. butter
1/2 c. milk
Salad oil for deep frying
Sift flour, measure, then sift again with salt, baking powder, and sugar into a bowl. Add butter and rub into flour with your fingertips until mixture is like coarse meal. Beat eggs lightly with milk, then pour into flour mixture and stir until dough forms a solid mass. Turn dough out onto board, and knead lightly for 2 minutes or until smooth. Cut dough into balls the size of marbles and let stand 15 minutes.
Roll each ball on a lightly floured board into a very thin pancake 4 inches in diameter. Cut a hole in center with a thimble. After rolling out the circles of dough, place them in a single layer on waxed paper until ready to cook.
Fry in hot deep fat (375 degrees) until puffed and golden brown, about 30 seconds on each side. Drain on paper towels. Use following coating. Makes 6 dozen sugar-coated Bunuelos.
Mix 1 cup granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl. As Bunuelos are still warm, shake in sugar mixture. Works well with one person frying and one shaking in sugar mixture.
