Ingredients

For the churros:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter cut into pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 eggs
  • oil for frying I used canola oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon more or less to taste

For the raspberry sauce:

  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 12 ounces frozen raspberries

Instructions

  1. To make the churros, add the water, butter, and salt to a medium saucepan and heat over medium high heat, stirring occasionally, until the butter is melted. Remove from heat. Add the flour all at once and stir to form a dough. Add the eggs one at a time, stirring well after each addition, until the dough is smooth and satiny. Scoop the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a large open star tip.
  2. Heat the oil in a pot over medium heat until it reaches 365 degrees. While you’re waiting for the oil to heat, prepare an area to drain the churros. I usually use a cooling rack lined with paper towels.
  3. Mix together the sugar and cinnamon in a shallow dish and set aside.
  4. Carefully pipe six inch lengths of dough into the oil, being careful not to crowd the pot. Let cook 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Remove and let drain for 1-2 minutes, then roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  5. To make the raspberry sauce, whisk together the corn starch, sugar, and water in a medium saucepan. Add the raspberries and stir to combine. Heat over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the mixture reaches a boil. Let boil one minute, then remove from heat. Strain through a fine mesh strainer (if desired) to remove the seeds.
