Step 1 of 10

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.

Step 3 of 10

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.

Step 4 of 10

TRANSFER dough to a large bowl. Cover with plastic wrap; let stand for 30 minutes.

Step 5 of 10

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.

Step 6 of 10

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.

Step 9 of 10

CAREFULLY add a few buñuelos at a time to oil and fry for 20 to 30 seconds on each side or until golden.

Step 10 of 10

TRANSFER each star immediately to cinnamon/sugar mixture and coat.
