Haven't made them,I just wanted to say that this is a Spanish recipe and very possible to be different from the Mexican version.

These were very fast & easy to make but tasted nothing like those we're used to from a local Mexican restaurant. They seemed too dense and eggy, like the inside didn't want to cook. I doubt we'll finish them.

Worked out great. I doubled it, but added 1/4 c of sugar to the water and butter as they boiled (don't use margarine, whatever you do!), because I don't like unsweetened batters. They were delicious plain, and even more so with the sugar and cinnamon. My only complaint - my star tip was too small! I'd love these to have been a little fatter & puffy; mine look like sweet french fries. For an easy "dip", I just melted a Cocoa Camino 71% bar with some condensed milk. Mmm... it's traditional to eat deep-fried foods at Chanukah, and this is sure to become a classic!
