Hot Honey Churros

Hot Honey Churros

YIELD: Makes 4-6 servings


For Churro:

1/2 cup - butter, unsalted

1 cup - water

1 cup - flour, all purpose

3 - eggs

1/2 T - honey

1/2 T - sugar

1 1/2 tsp. - vanilla

as needed - non-stick spray

as needed - vegetable oil (for frying)

For Honey Chili Sauce:

5 T - honey

3 T - Chili Paste (Sambal)


Melt butter and water in a saucepan.

Add flour and stir continuously. Keep stirring over the heat until the mixture thickens and comes together to form a smooth 'ball'.

Remove from the heat and stir in the eggs one at a time.

Add the honey, sugar and vanilla and mix well.

Spoon into a piping bag fitted with a star-shaped nozzle.

Apply non-stick spray to a sheet tray lined with parchment paper. Pipe out small spiral shapes with the dough.

In a sauce pot heat oil to 360°F.

Once oil is hot, drop the churro spirals into the oil one by one, using a spatula. Turn on each side until golden brown in color.

Remove from oil and place onto absorbent paper. Let cool.

In a separate mixing bowl, mix together honey and chili paste. Stir well.

Once churros are cool, brush the churros with the honey chili sauce using a pastry brush, or use the sauce as a dip.

Serve immediately.
