Original reipce makes 2 dozen Change Servings
COMBINE water, 4 teaspoons sugar and cinnamon stick in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Let mixture come to a boil; remove from heat. Let cool to room temperature. Stir in Coffee-mate; set aside. Remove cinnamon stick.
COMBINE flour, baking powder and shortening in a large bowl. Mix with hands until mixture becomes crumbly.
ADD egg and vanilla extract; continue mixing with hands. Continue mixing, adding liquid mixture a 1/4 cup at a time until a smooth and malleable dough forms. If dough is too dry, moisten hands and form a large ball.
TRANSFER dough to a large bowl. Cover with plastic wrap; let stand for 30 minutes.
ROLL out dough in 1-cup portions at a time to 1/4-inch thickness or thinner. Using a 3-inch star cookie or sandwich cutter, cut out dough stars.
PLACE dough stars on a flat surface; let stand for 15 minutes.
COMBINE ½ cup sugar and ground cinnamon in a shallow bowl or large plate.
HEAT approximately 1/2-inch depth of oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Test oil temperature by dropping in a small ball of dough. Oil should bubble.
CAREFULLY add a few buñuelos at a time to oil and fry for 20 to 30 seconds on each side or until golden.
TRANSFER each star immediately to cinnamon/sugar mixture and coat.
