Here are the directions to make the churros:

  • Combine water, butter, salt, and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon in 1 1/2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Bring pot to a rolling boil.
  • Reduce heat to low.
  • Add flour and stir vigorously until mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat and let rest for 5-7 minutes.
  • Add eggs, one at a time, and stir until combined. Set aside.
  • Heat oil in a medium skillet or one-quart saucepan over medium-high heat or until temperature reaches 350 degrees.
  • Spoon dough into a piping bag fitted with large star tip. Pipe one-inch strip of dough over the saucepan, cut with a knife, and drop into the hot oil. Repeat until churro bites fill saucepan with room to fry.
  • Fry churro bites until golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon or mesh spider strainer.
  • Drain churro bites on paper towel.
  • Mix sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a medium bowl. Toss in churro bites until coated. Place on serving plate and serve with favorite dipping sauce.
  • With the surge in home baking that is going around, this recipe is a great chance to bake up some sugary, gooey churros the same way that Disney does.
