Wouldn't Be A Fair Without'em Churros

Made  times

"A county fair wouldn't be the same in New England without vendors hawking their fried dough. When I lived in South Florida I noticed that the county fairs are filled with churreria stalls instead! While most hispanic cultures serve up these tasty treats, they are believed to have originated in Madrid."

  1. Bring the salt and water to a boil in a medium sized pan.
  2. Add the flour all at once and work with a wooden spoon until a consistent dough is formed.
  3. Remove from heat and continue to work the dough until it is smooth and even.
  4. Let cool just until you are able to handle the dough.
  5. Heat oil to 375 degrees in frying pan or deep fryer.
  6. Fill pastry bag fitted with your largest star tip with the dough.
  7. When oil is ready, carefully pipe in strips of dough forming loops. (You can form them into straight sticks if desired. These are called "porras".)
  8. Let Churros fry for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Remove from oil and let them drain on paper towels or on a cooling rack over a baking pan to catch any drips.
  10. If desired, these can be sprinkled with regular sugar, cinnamon sugar or powdered sugar.
