FOR THE CHURROS
2 & 1/4 cup water
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 & 1⁄4 cups flour
FOR THE CINNAMON SUGAR
1 & 1/2 cups sugar
1-2 tablespoons cinnamon
Canola oil (or any neutral oil with a high smoking point for frying)
for the churros
In a medium/large saucepan over med/high heat, melt together butter, water, salt & vanilla - bring to a boil.
Slowly add the flour & stir vigorously with a wooden spoon until dough comes together & is smooth.
Transfer dough to a clean bowl, and let cool for a few minutes before adding thee egg. WERK UR BICEPS HUNTY! If you don’t - you’ll just scramble the egg.
Transfer the dough to a piping bag fitted with a closed start tip & set aside
for the cinnamon sugar
um….just mix your cinnamon & your sugar?
probably in a shallow bowl so it’ll be easy to coat the churros later
lol you didn’t need these instructions did you
Using a dutch oven - heat about 2-3 inches of oil to 400 F
Once temperature has been reached - pipe 3 to 5 inchs of dough over the oil - and cut.
Fry them until lightly golden, flipping often so they get color on all sides.
Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon or strainer - and place on a tray lined with paper towels to drain excess oil
While the churros are still hot (but touchable) transfer them to the bowl of cinnamon sugar & coat
Serve with chocolate sauce, dulce de leche or whatever else you like!
