Yummy Mexican snack or dessert. Add cinnamon to the sugar for a different taste after they are all cooked. Children love these.

I'm a Spanish teacher and have been looking for a good and easy churros recipe my students can have to make their own churros. This one is great for that. I did have one problem with the recipe. I piped the churros on wax paper and had problems with them sticking to the paper. Next time, I'll try piping them on a floured surface.
