Fried Rosette Cookies – Bunuelos
I remember eating this when I was a little girl and had no idea that these were a Mexican fried treat (history has traced this treat back to Europe’s Iberian Peninsula). Many Spanish speaking countries have a variation of this treat and some make it into flat round discs, while others will use an iron to make pretty designs. Really, flat or pretty rosettes, these fried treats are delicious!
I’m not sure of the origin of my mom’s recipe, but her recipe has cornstarch and sugar. Most traditional bunuelos recipes I’ve seen only use flour and no cornstarch. As far as sugar goes, some traditional recipes will use it in the batter and some won’t. Both versions are good, but I think the addition of cornstarch makes the cookies a bit crunchier and adding sugar to the batter makes it possible to eat the cookies without a sugar topping. Although, my kids prefer to eat these fried rosette cookies with a cinnamon/sugar topping.
Oh, and please don’t get discouraged if your first few don’t come out perfectly (they still taste good). Making these fried rosette cookies does have a learning curve and may take several tries.
