Bunuelos

1 egg
1/3 c milk
2 c harina preparada*
2 tbsp. sugar
2 tbsp. butter, melted
oil for frying

for cinnamon sugar:
1/2 c sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Beat egg well and stir in milk. Gradually add the harina preparada and sugar. Add butter, turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth (3-5 minutes). Divide the dough in half, then in half again, then make 3 balls of dough out of each piece, for a total of 12. Roll out to 6" in diameter. Brush off any excess flour (this will keep your oil as clean as possible). Fry in at least 1" of oil heated to 375 degrees until browned on both sides. Remove from the hot oil and drain on paper towels, dust immediately with cinnamon sugar.

*if you can't find harina preparada use 2c flour, 3/4 tsp baking powder, and 1/2 tsp. salt instead
