  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup water with 1/8 tsp. of salt
  • vegetable oil
  • Plate of granulated or powdered sugar


  • Sift the flour in a mixing bowl, while bringing the salted water to a boil.
  • Pour the boiling water over the flour, stirring lightly until the dough forms into a ball - about 30 seconds. The dough should be compact, but not runny or too soft.
  • If you have a churrera or a cookie press, load it up with the dough. If not, a big freezer zip lock or a pastry bag with a corner cut off works, too. Use a star shaped tip, if you have it.
  • Squeeze dough onto waxed paper in about 6 inch strips.
  • Heat the oil until very hot.
  • Fry the dough in the super-hot oil, turning once when you see the edges barely begin to pick up color. (think pancakes) Fry for about 5 minutes total.
  • Remove with a slotted spoon, draining as much oil as possible and place on the sugar plate and roll in the sugar.
  • Serve immediately with some hot chocolate with whipped cream and cinnamon stick YUM!
