3 cups flour
1 tsp. Baking Powder
2 1/2 cups water
2 egg yolks
1/2 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. dark brown sugar
oil for deep frying
sugar and cinnamon to roll in

Sift flour and baking powder into a bowl and set aside. Bring measured water to a boil then add salt ans brown sugar, stirring constantly until dissolved. Remove from heat and add flour and baking powder. Beat until smooth with either beaters or a fork.

Beat in eggs one at a time until smooth and glossy. Set batter aside to cool. Put into a piping bag with a star nozzle. (when I did this with my roommates we didnt have one so we just rolled it with our hands. It didn't turn out as pretty but then we could make it into different shapes- donuts, balls, hearts, etc.)

Have a pan or deep fryer with at least 2- inches deep of oil. Heat to 375 degrees F. Place batter in oil and let cook until golden brown (or longer if your churro is really thick). Then roll immediately into cinnamon and sugar mixture. Let cool a few minutes before eating.

These were seriously some of the best churros I've ever had!!!

I'm so proud of you Megan!! I can't wait to try these...and see if they really are "the best Churros." Hopefully they'll come close to Disneyland churros. :-)
