IMG_20150821_084742

Ingredients:

  • 20 Oreo cookies
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Oil for frying

Directions:

  1. Separate the Oreo cookies, scraping the filling into a bowl then put the chocolate cookies into a food processor and process into fine crumbs.
  2. In a sauce pan, bring water, butter, brown sugar, and salt to a boil.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together flour, 2 tablespoons Oreo cookie crumbs, and cinnamon. Once the water mixture has come to a boil, remove from the heat and mix in the flour mixture. Keep mixing until combined.
  4. Add the eggs and vanilla extract, and mix until a dough forms
  5. Line two baking sheets with parchment or wax paper. Fit a pastry bag with a large star-shaped piping tip and fill the bag with the churro dough.
  6. Pipe the dough into long strips
  7. Place baking sheet in the freezer for at least 10 minutes to set and chill the dough.
  8. Add oil to a large skillet or deep fryer so that it’s at least 2 inches deep. Line a separate baking sheet with several layers of paper towels.
  9. In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the granulated sugar with the remaining Oreo cookie crumbs.
  10. Fry 1-2 churros at a time, turning them over occasionally so they brown evenly. When finished they will be slightly puffed. Transfer to the paper-towel-lined baking sheet using a slotted spoon or spatula to let the oil drain. Quickly toss them in the sugar mixture while they are still hot.
  11. Continue working in small batches until all of the churros are fried.
  12. Using a hand mixer or a stand-up mixer, whip heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks are formed. Gently fold in the Oreo filling, being careful not to overmix. Place into a bowl and serve a dollop of whipped cream with each churro.

Enjoy!
