Monday Munchies ~ Churros
Each Monday we will kick off the week with a Must have recipe to help get you out of the kitchen and back stitching ASAP!

I have no idea what has gotten into my husband but he decided while I was cooking dinner that he had to make Churros for dessert. Now, my husband is AMAZING in the kitchen and I highly recommend his creations (especially if you have a choice between his or mine). But this came out of left field. He had never made Churros before, but how hard could it be, right? For me, well let's just say the dog wouldn't even touch them! Deane's were gone in a minute. Here's his recipe, I obviously need to listen to him more....but don't tell him that!

1 cup water
2 1/2 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 quarts oil for frying
1/2 cup white sugar, or to taste
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine water, 2 ½ tablespoons sugar, salt and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Stir flour until mixture forms a ball.
2. Heat oil for frying in a deep-fryer or deep skillet to 375 degrees F(190 degrees C). Pipe strips of dough into hot oil using a pastry bag. (You can also use a plastic bag and cut a bottom corner at an angle) Fry until golden; drain on paper towels.
3. Combine ½ cup sugar and cinnamon. Roll drained churros in the sugar and cinnamon mixture.
