Hola Sober OCTOBER

We are all lovers of cheese cake on the team and I have made this particular recipe a number of times and it's simple goodness is always a crowd pleaser and I sort of loved the word 'addiction' on the blog site when I found it!!! CLASSIC CHURROS INGREDIENTS from REAL SIMPLE rec ip I use

Vegetable oil, for frying 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon ½ cup plus 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar, divided 1 cup water ½ cup (1 stick) salted butter, softened ½ teaspoon kosher salt 1 cup all-purpose flour 3 large eggs Chocolate Dipping Sauce (recipe follows) For Chocolate Sauce: 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped ½ cup heavy cream ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

For churros: Pour oil to a depth of 2 inches in a Dutch oven and fit with a deep-fry thermometer; heat to 350°F over medium-high. Combine cinnamon and ½ cup of the sugar in a shallow dish. Set aside. Step 2 Stir together water, butter, salt, and remaining 2 tablespoons sugar in a large, heavy-duty saucepan over medium-high. Bring to a boil, stirring, until butter melts. Reduce heat to low, add flour all at once, and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture forms a ball, about 30 seconds. Remove from heat and add eggs, 1 at a time, stirring vigorously until dough is smooth and elastic after each addition. Step 3 Spoon mixture into a piping bag fitted with a large star tip. (Or place mixture in a large ziplock plastic freezer bag, and snip 1 corner to make about a 1/2-inch hole.) Working in batches, pipe 4-inch-long strips into hot oil, and fry, turning occasionally, until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Step 4 Transfer churros to a paper towel-lined baking sheet to drain, and immediately roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Step 5 For chocolate sauce: Stir together chocolate, cream, and vanilla in a small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth, about 1 1/2 minutes. Serve warmwith churros.
