1 dozen 4-6-inch churros
- Add enough oil to a large saucepan or deep skillet to come to a depth of at least 2 inches; heat to about 350 degrees. Mix 1/2-cup sugar and the cinnamon together on a large plate. Combine remaining sugar, butter, salt and 1-cup water in a saucepan over high heat, and bring to a boil. Turn heat to low, and add flour, all at once. Stir constantly until mixture forms a ball, about 30 seconds.
- Remove from heat, and beat eggs one at a time into mixture, stirring until smooth after each addition and spoon dough into a pastry bag with a large star tip. Press strips of dough about 4 inches long into hot oil. Cook as many as will fit comfortably at once, turning as they brown, 5-10 minutes each.
- Remove churros from oil, and drain on paper towels, then immediately roll them in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Serve hot or warm.
