 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  cup           shortening
    3      cups          flour
           dash          salt
      3/4  cup           warm water
      1/2  cup           oil
                         ----Topping----
    1      cup           sugar
    1      teaspoon      cinnamon
 
 Work shortening into flour and salt with a pastry blender or your hands.
 Add warm water and stir until dough comes together.  Roll out to thin rounds
 7-8 inches in diameter.  Heat oil in a shallow skillet until hot.  Quarter
 each round and drop flat into hot oil, brown lightly about 30 seconds on
 each side.  Remove from skillet and sprinkle to taste with topping mixture
 of cinnamon and sugar.  Makes 15-16 tortilla rounds, or about 60 bunuelos.
