Churros

Churros

  • Yield: 25 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup(s) water
  • 3 tablespoon(s) light brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon(s) kosher salt
  • 1 stick(s) unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • 1 1/2 cup(s) granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoon(s) ground cinnamon

Preparation

DIRECTIONS

1. In a medium saucepan set over high heat, add the water, brown sugar, salt and butter. Stir to combine and bring to a boil. Whisk in the flour until a smooth paste forms, switching to a wooden spoon as the mixture thickens. Continue to stir until the dough comes together into a ball and pulls away from the sides of the pan, 2 to 3 minutes.

2. To the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, add the dough. Mix on medium-high speed until the dough stops steaming, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing until each is combined before adding the next. Add the vanilla and continue mixing until the dough is smooth.

3. Line a baking sheet with paper towels and set aside. To a medium saucepan set over medium heat, add enough oil to fill the pan halfway. Bring the oil to 350°. Use a rubber spatula to transfer the dough to a pastry bag fitted with a small star tip (we used size #864) and, holding the bag above the hot oil, pipe the dough into the oil in 6-inch strips (use your finger or a knife to separate the dough from the tip). Add just enough dough at a time so the pieces fry without touching. Fry until the churros are golden, using a frying spider or slotted spoon to turn halfway through frying, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer the churros to the paper towel-lined baking sheet.

4. To a large bowl, add the granulated sugar and cinnamon and mix to combine. Toss the hot churros in the cinnamon sugar and set aside on a plate. Repeat with the remaining dough until all the churros are made. Serve warm.

Make ahead: The dough can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 1 day before frying. Bring the dough back to room temperature before frying.

Storing: Though they are best served warm, the churros can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.
