Equipment

  • featherweight piping bag
  • Wilton 18 piping tip
  • parchment paper

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup water
  • 1.5 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 quarts vegetable oil
  • 2 cups ice cream your choice

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, stir together 1 cup of sugar and one and a half teaspoons of cinnamon. Set aside.
  • In a medium pot combine water, remaining sugar, salt, and two tablespoons of vegetable oil.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the flour with a rubber spatula.
  • Continue to stir until a sticky dough comes together and work until there are no clumps.
  • Fit a pastry bag with Wilton 18 star piping tip.
  • Fill the pastry bag with your prepared dough.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Pipe 2-3 inch diameter circles onto the parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Place the baking sheet in the freezer for 10-12 minutes. The dough shouldn't be frozen but less sticky.
  • While the dough is setting in the freezer, heat the two quarts of vegetable oil in a heavy bottomed pot over medium heat until it reaches a temperature of 360-375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Line a plate with paper towels.
  • When ready carefully place two circles of dough into the oil and fry until light golden brown, flipping half-way through. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Place cooked churros onto lined plate.
  • Toss each churro in the prepared cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • Once the churros are cooked, assemble by topping one churro with a scoop of ice cream and topping it with a second churro. Press them together gently to create a sandwich.
