For the Churros

  • 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 Cups Water
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • 4 Tbsp Butter
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1.5 Cups Oil for frying

For the Piloncillo Dipping Sauce

  • 2 Piloncillo Cone (8 Oz.)
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • 2 Cups Water


For the Churros

  • Add the water, salt, butter, and cinnamon stick to a pot and bring to a boil. 
  • As soon as the water starts boiling, remove the cinnamon stick, and add the flour.
  • Remove from heat and stir rapidly until the dough is formed. Let Cool.
  • Once the dough is cooled, but still warm, add to a pastry bag with a star tip and begin to push the dough out to the length that you desire for your churros. You can use kitchen scissors to help you cut it off at the right length. 
  • Heat the oil and fry the churros, one or two at a time, until they are golden brown (about 1-2 minutes), turning them over once or twice during the process. 
  • Combine the sugar and ground cinnamon in a large bowl and mix well. 
  • Roll the recently fried churros in the cinnamon sugar mix, and serve immediately with chocolate or piloncillo dipping sauce. 

For the Piloncillo Dipping Sauce

  • Add the piloncillo cones, the water and the cinnamon stick to a small pot and heat over medium heat until the piloncillo begins to melt, stirring constantly. 
  • Remove the cinnamon stick and reduce to low heat.
  • Let simmer until it reaches the desired consistency.
  • Remove from heat and serve with churros.
