  • Yield: Serves 6


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
  • Chocolate Dipping Sauce for Churros, optional


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup water, butter, sugar, and salt; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low, and sift in flour, stirring for 1 minute.

  2. Transfer flour mixture to bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. On low speed, add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until incorporated after each addition; spoon mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a large open-star tip.

  3. Heat 4 to 5 inches oil in a large Dutch-oven until it registers 325 degrees.on a deep-fry thermometer. Holding pastry bag a few inches above the oil, squeeze out batter, snipping off 4-inch lengths with a knife or kitchen shears. Fry, flipping once, until deep golden brown all over, about 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer churros to a paper towel-lined baking sheet to drain.

  4. Roll churros in confectioners' sugar. Serve immediately with Chocolate Dipping Sauce.

    Can these be made in advance? Can the batter be made in advance but the same day of frying? Can these be made before a party a few hours before they are eaten or fried before dinner is served?

    Can the batter be made in advance and then fry them during a party? Or will they keep a few hours if I make them right before a party or before dinner is served?
