Ingredients:

  • 1cup             water

  • 8 T (4oz.)      butter

  • 1/2 tsp          salt

  • 1/2 tsp          ground cinnamon

  • 1 1/4 cups    all-purpose flour

  • 3 ea               eggs

For frying:

  • 1 1/2 cups   vegetable or canola oil

For sugar coating:

  • 1 tsp              ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup         sugar

Directions:

  1. Combine water, butter, salt and cinnamon in a pot. Bring to a rolling boil and then reduce the heat to low.

  2. Add flour and stir vigorously with a wooden spatula until a ball of dough forms and there are no clumps. There should be a small coating of flour on the bottom.

  3. Remove from heat and allow to cool down by either mixing the dough in a stand mixer on low setting or using a hand mixer.

  4. Once cooled, add eggs one at a time until combined. The dough should be smooth and thick, yet pipeable.

  5. Transfer to a pastry bag fitted with a 1 inch star or French tip.

  6. Heat a pot of oil to 350°F. Pipe dough into pot. Use scissors or knife to cut the end. Fry for about 4-5 minutes until golden brown. The dough should puff up. If using the second frozen method, add a few more minutes.

  7. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel lined plate or mesh strainer to drain the oil.

  8. While still warm, toss into cinnamon/sugar mixture and coat thoroughly. Serve immediately!
