Disney Parks Churro Bites

Disney Parks Churro Bites

UPDATE (to post below)

I got a bigger tip and the churro bites came out much better!  I ordered this one from Amazon and it was perfect for churros, as you can see when looking at the two pictures.  They turned out almost just like the churros you get at Disneyland and not like churro fries!

I decided to give another Disney recipe a go, this time churros.  They tasted good but the biggest tip that I had (a Wilton 1M) to pipe them with just wasn’t big enough so they ended up being small and crunchy, without that yummy tender churro inside.  I ordered a bigger tip on Amazon so I’ll probably give them another try when that arrives.  Still it was a mostly successful quarantine bake!

1 cup water

1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon cinnamon, divided

1 1/4 cups flour

3 eggs

1 1/2 cups vegetable or canola oil or Crisco shortening

1/2 cup sugar

1  Combine water, butter, salt and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon in saucepan over medium heat.  Bring pot to roiling boil.  Reduce heat to low.

2  Add flour and stir vigorously until mixture forms a ball.  Remove from heat and let rest 5 – 7 minutes.

3  Add eggs, one at a time, and stir until combined.

4  Heat oil in medium skillet or saucepan over medium high heat until temperature reaches 350.

5  Spoon dough into piping bag fitted with large star tip.  Pipe 1″ strip of dough over saucepan, cut with knife, and drop into hot oil.  Repeat until churro bites fill saucepan with room to fry.

6  Fry until golden brown.  Remove with slotted spoon or mesh spider strainer.  Drain on paper towel.

7  Mix sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in medium bowl.  Toss churro bites until coated.
