Churros

Yield Makes 6 to 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

How to Make It

  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Add flour, all at once, stirring vigorously over medium-high heat until mixture leaves sides of pan and forms a smooth ball. Remove from heat.

  2. Stir in vanilla. Add eggs, one at a time, beating with a wooden spoon after each addition until smooth.

  3. Pour oil to depth of 2 inches in a large Dutch oven or heavy saucepan; heat to 370°. Spoon batter into a large decorating bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe batter in 6-inch strips into hot oil, in batches, and fry 3 minutes or until golden, turning once. Lift out with a wire spatula, and drain on paper towels.

  4. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a shallow dish. Roll churros in sugar mixture. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve immediately.
