Anything fried and rolled in sugar is a winner in my book. Ya thats pretty bad I know, lol. I love this delicious Mexican dessert. They taste especially good with hot chocolate. Many people like to dip the sweet treat into melted chocolate.
1 cup water
1 tablespoon sugar plus extra for dusting
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 large egg
1 cup sunflower oil
1. In a 4-quart saucepan on high heat add water, sugar and salt. Bring to a full boil. Remove from heat and beat in flour until smooth. Beat in egg until you have a smooth dough.
2. In a 1-quart sauce pan on medium heat add oil. Allow to get hot but not to hot. Meanwhile, pour the batter into a pastry bag fitted with a fluted nozzle. Pipe strips (as long as you like) into the oil adding 5-6 at a time. Fry 3-4 minutes or until golden brown. Using a slotted spoon remove churros and drain on a paper towel. Roll hot churros in sugar before serving.
