Ingredients

CINNAMON SUGAR

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

CHURRO BATTER

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup Crisco® Butter Flavor All-Vegetable Shortening
  • OR 1/4 stick Crisco® Baking Sticks Butter Flavor All-Vegetable Shortening
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Pillsbury BEST® All Purpose Flour
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 cups Crisco® Pure Canola Oil, for frying

Preparation Directions

  • Combine all Cinnamon Sugar ingredients in medium bowl using a wire whisk. Set aside.
  • COMBINE milk, shortening, sugar and salt in in medium saucepan; bring to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved and shortening is melted.
  • 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.
  • BEAT in eggs, 1 at a time; continue beating until smooth, shiny, sticky paste forms, about 3 minutes.
  • 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.
  • 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.
