Churros

Sweet

Churros are hard to beat. Warm, fried, chewy and crispy dough dredged in cinnamon sugar and served with a dipping sauce (I opted for Nutella). What's not to love? They're perhaps one of the easiest things I've ever made in my kitchen. And, if you're looking to fry something for the first time and want an easy way to test your skills, this is the recipe I'd suggest.
