It just wouldn’t be Christmas without these easy-to-make sugar and cinnamon treats. I love having buñuelos in the morning with a little cafecito during the holiday season. This is my Mom’s recipe. Just remember to make all twenty because they go quickly. You can even stack them about three to five high, tie them with festive twine, and take them to the next Christmas gathering you attend. Your hostess will love you for it. They are irresistible, especially drizzled with miel virgen (honey) or cajeta (Mexican caramel). Buñuelos are crunchy and aromatic with the delicate scent of cinnamon and each sugary crunch whispers, “Feliz Navidad!”
