INGREDIENTS

CINNAMON SUGAR

  • 1 C. sugar
  • 2 tsps. Spice Islands® Ground Saigon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

CHURRO BATTER

  • 1 C. whole milk
  • 1/4 C. Crisco® Butter Flavor All-Vegetable Shortening
  • 2 tsps. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 C. all-purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 C. Crisco® Pure Canola Oil

DIRECTIONS

  1. Combine all cinnamon sugar ingredients in medium bowl using a wire whisk. Set aside.
  2. COMBINE milk, shortening, sugar and salt in in medium saucepan; bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved and shortening is melted.
  3. REDUCE heat to medium low. Add flour; stir vigorously with wooden spoon until a shiny dough forms, about 1 minute. Transfer to the bowl of an electric mixer; cool 5 minutes.
  4. BEAT in eggs, 1 at a time; continue beating until smooth, shiny, sticky paste forms, about 3 minutes.
  5. HEAT oil in a large skillet over medium heat to 350°F. Working in batches, spoon batter into pastry bag fitted with large star tip. Pipe batter into hot oil in 3 1/2 to 4-inch long ribbons (use a knife or scissors to cut batter at end of star tip) and allow batter to slide into oil.
  6. FRY churros until brown and cooked through in center, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to paper towels. Cool 5 minutes. Toss in cinnamon sugar to coat. Serve warm.
