Trust us, once you make your own Cinnamon Churro Sticks, you'll never be able to eat another churro again! Well, except Disneyland. But that's just cause it's a theme park must-have.
  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add butter, sugar, water, and salt. Stir until combined and let it come to a boil.
  2. Add flour and stir until dough forms. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  3. Once cooled, add egg and vanilla extract. Stir until combined. Scoop dough into a piping bag or a ziplock back with one corner cut off. For more churro-like results, use a star piping tip.
  4. Heat oil in a deep skillet until it reaches 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Carefully pipe strips of dough into the hot oil. Fry for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden and crispy all around.
  5. Remove from oil and drain on a paper towel-lined plate. Continue piping until dough is finished.
  6. While churros are hot, cover with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Serve Cinnamon Churro Sticks and enjoy!
