Homemade Churros are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, with a sandy cinnamon and sugar coating! An amusement park favorite that’s fun to make at home.


– ¾ cup all-purpose flour – ¾ cup water – 6 tablespoons unsalted butter cut into 6 pieces – 1 teaspoon vanilla – 1 teaspoon sugar – ¼ teaspoon salt – 2 – 3 large eggs room temperature – Vegetable oil or canola oil to fry churros Cinnamon Sugar – ½ cup granulated sugar – 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a deep fryer or large pan, add about 2 inches of oil. Heat over medium heat to 375°.

Measure flour and set aside. Bring water, butter, vanilla, sugar, and salt to a boil in a 3-qt. saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. – 

Immediately remove from heat, and quickly stir in flour mixture all at once. Return to heat and stir with a wooden spoon for 1 to 2 minutes, or until dough is smooth and forms a ball

Transfer dough to the bowl of an electric mixer and let cool 5 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until mixture is smooth and glossy.

Prepare cinnamon sugar and then spoon dough into a pastry bag fitted with a closed rose tip.

Carefully pipe dough into preheated oil, in 6-inch lengths. Use kitchen scissors or tongs to cut off dough from piping bag. Cook 2 or 3 churros at a time. Fry until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side.

Remove churros with tongs to a plate to cooling tray lined with paper towels. Roll churros in cinnamon sugar, and place on a cooling rack. Repeat process with remaining dough.
