Allison Osorio's Buñuelos in Piloncillo Syrup

Freshly made buñuelos on a heating rack
A classic Mexican holiday treat, buñuelos are fritters made of dough stretched impossibly thin and fried until tooth-shatteringly crisp. December Chef en Residencia Allison Osorio's version adds a little masa into the flour-based dough. After searing the discs on the comal and quickly frying, she caramelizes them in a reduced syrup made of piloncillo (Mexican cane sugar) that's flavored with warm, festive spices inspired by the version her grandma used to make in Mexico.
