Homemade Churros

In honor of Cinco De Mayo I decided to make a mexican dessert!
It was WAY easier than I thought it would be…
maybe it will become a regular dessert in my repertoire

1 C Water
2 ½ Tbsp Sugar
½ tsp Salt
2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
1 C Flour
Oil for frying
½ C Sugar
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon

Over medium heat in a small saucepan, combine Water, 2 ½ Tbsp Sugar, Salt,
 and 2 Tbs Vegetable Oil. Bring to a boil.
Remove from heat and add flour.
Mix until mixture forms a ball.

Heat about 2 inches of oil in a pan, skillet, or deep-fryer to 375 degrees.
Pipe strips of dough into the hot oil.
Fry for about 2-5 minutes until golden.
Remove from oil and drain on a paper towel. 

Combine ½ C Sugar and Cinnamon. Roll drained churros in 
Cinnamon and Sugar mixture.
