How to Make Homemade Churros
Prep: 15 Minutes
Cook: 30 Minutes
Serves: 6-8 Churros
1 TBSP ground cinnamon
1/2 C sugar plus 1 tbsp sugar
6 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tsp kosher salt
1 C flour
3 large eggs
Canola oil for frying
1 large piping bag with a large star tip
1 cookie sheet fitted with parchment paper
6 Mickey heads traced onto parchment paper
How to Make Churros
In a medium bowl, whisk together the cinnamon and 1/2 C of sugar and set aside.
Using a medium pot over medium to high heat, bring the butter, salt, 1tbsp sugar, and ½ C of water to a simmer. Using a rubber spatula, whisk in the flour until it’s combined into a ball of dough.
Remove the dough and place it into a stand mixer bowl. Allow the churro dough to cool for 10 minutes. Once cooled, use a paddle attachment to beat in 1 egg at a time until combined.
Scoop the dough into the piping bag with a star tip on it. Using the cookie sheet with the traced Mickey heads, pipe the detail of the Mickeys head to make your churros dessert. Place cookie sheet into the freezer for 30 minutes.
About 10 minutes before removing the tray from the freezer, heat up canola oil in a large deep skillet or pot or a deep fryer if you have one.
Remove tray from the freezer and slowly remove one of the mickey shaped churros. Carefully drop the churro into the hot oil. Once it starts to brown on the bottom carefully flip it using a fork.
Once the entire churro has browned, remove from oil and place onto a paper towel. Dab oil off the churro and place it into the cinnamon and sugar mixture and toss to coat the churro.
Repeat steps with remaining churros.
How to Make Churro Bites
To make churro bites, use the same recipe for the dough. Pipe a short line instead of the Mickey head shapes. Remember that the cooking time is shorter for the bite-sized churros, so keep a close eye on them. Serve with chocolate sauce or caramel sauce for dipping.
