Delicious! They were every bit as good as the churros from my favorite restaurant! I did follow reviewers' suggestions and use 2 eggs in the dough. I also recommend serving the churros warm with warm chocolate syrup on the side for dipping. Thanks for the recipe!
these were good but i agree a lil eggy tasting. i would cut the salt back next time as well.
I thought they were pretty good. But I think they came out a little eggy tasting. I'm not sure if I did something wrong or not.
