Churros

1/2 c. butter
1 c. water
2 t. sugar
1 c. flour
4 eggs
1/2 c. sugar
2 t. ground cinnamon
vegetable oil for frying

Combine butter, water and 2 t. sugar in a large saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Once it has come to a boil, lower to a medium heat and add the flour, stirring constantly until it comes away from the pan and forms a ball. Remove from heat, transfer to a bowl, and beat with an electric mixer to cool the dough off a bit. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat until it becomes a smooth batter. Transfer the batter into a large piping bag fitted with a large star tip (I used a 2D). Carefully pipe 4" long ribbons directly into hot oil (375°) to fry. Fry until golden, turning to brown other side, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove with tongs and drain on paper towels. Mix 1/2 c. sugar and 2 t. cinnamon. Shake in bag with sugar and cinnamon mixture. Shake excess off and serve.
