  • Put a star tip inside a piping bag and have ready. 
  • Whisk together your cinnamon, 1 1/2 c of sugar in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Bring milk, butter, salt, 1/2 c water, and 1 tbsp sugar to a simmer in a pan over medium/high heat. 
  • Using a wooden spoon add in flour quickly and mix fast for about 30 seconds until it creates a dough. Remove from pot and place in the bowl of your stand mixer.
  • Allow to cool slightly for 5-10 minutes.
  • Use paddle attachment for your stand mixer and mix at medium/low speed. Add eggs to dough one at a time. Incorporate each egg well before adding the next one.
  • Scrape the sides of the bowl to ensure everything incorporates well into the dough. After all eggs are added it should be easy to spoon into a piping bag.
  • Heat vegetable oil in a pot on the stovetop until it is about 350 degrees or until a small drop of dough fries immediately and floats to top.
  • Squeeze out 4-5 inches of your dough into the hot oil and cut off with a knife quickly so it drops in and stays one long piece.
  • Fry a few at a time, not overlapping as they will stick together. 2 minutes on each side until lightly brown.
  • Remove and put on paper towel to drain excess oil. Mix together rest of sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle on churros, all sides.
  • Enjoy immediately for best taste.
