End a spicy Mexican meal on a sweet note with deep-fried cinnamon strips.

Ingredients

Vegetable oil for deep frying
3/4
cup water
1/3
cup butter or margarine
2
tablespoons sugar
1/8
teaspoon salt
3/4
cup all-purpose flour
1/4
cup cornmeal
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon
3
eggs
1/4
cup sugar
1/4
teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  • 1 In deep fryer or heavy skillet, heat 2 to 3 inches oil to 375°F. In 2-quart saucepan, mix water, butter, 2 tablespoons sugar and the salt. Heat to boiling. Add flour and cornmeal; cook until mixture leaves sides of pan in smooth ball, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating vigorously by hand after each addition until mixture is smooth.
  • 2 Spoon mixture into decorating bag fitted with large star tip. Pipe 4-inch strips of dough directly into hot oil. Fry 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown, turning several times. Remove carefully from oil with tongs. (Do not prick surface of churros.) Drain on paper towels.
  • 3 In pie pan or shallow dish, mix 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. Roll warm churros in sugar-cinnamon mixture. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

For a flavor variation, warm churros can be sprinkled with anise-flavored powdered sugar. In small bowl, slightly crush 1 teaspoon anise seed. Add 1/2 cup powdered sugar; mix well. Cover tightly; let stand at least 24 hours. Sift sugar to remove seeds before using.
