Churros

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter (diced into small cubes)
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • vegetable oil (for frying)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions:

  1. For the coating whisk together 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon in a shallow dish, set aside.

  2. Heat about 1 1/2 inches vegetable oil in a large pot or deep skillet over medium-high heat to 260 degrees. While oil is heating prepare batter.

  3. Add water, butter, sugar and salt to a large saucepan, bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

  4. Add flour reduce heat to medium-low and cook and stir constantly with a rubber spatula until mixture comes together and is smooth (a few lumps in it are fine).

  5. Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl, let cool 5 minutes.

  6. Add vanilla and egg to flour mixture then blend immediately with an electric mixer. Blend until mixture comes together and is smooth (it will separate at first but keep mixing it will come together).

  7. Transfer to a 16-inch piping bag fitted with a rounded star tip (no bigger than 1/2-inch). I recommend using the Ateco 845 or 846.

  8. Carefully pipe mixture into preheated oil, into about 6-inch lengths, cut end with clean scissors.

  9. Let fry until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to paper towels to dry briefly then transfer to cinnamon sugar mixture and roll to coat.

  10. Repeat process with remaining dough (frying no more than 5 at once). Serve warm.
