These thin and crispy Amish Friendship Bread Mexican Buñuelos make a sweet afternoon snack. This fun recipe was shared with us by Kitchen Friend Joleen Waltman. Drizzle with honey butter, and enjoy!
Kitchen Friend Joleen Waltman offered great tips on making these fun treats: “Buñuelos are popular in Latin-American countries. They are typically made thin and crispy. They are pronounced as (boon-wel-los). One trick to get the tortillas thin enough is to lay the dough between two pieces of greased wax paper and then roll out. The oil gets hot and can splatter. Gently put the dough in the oil from front to back of the pan.”
