Churro - Glossary Term

view glossary term online:
A pastry originating in Spain, that is basically fried dough extruded through a fluted tube, resulting in a star shaped stick that is cut to a desired length. Street vendors sell this product in 5 to 15 inch lengths. It is eaten as a fried pastry with a crispy outer shell that covers a soft inner cake-textured center. Churros are often dipped in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar to sweeten the taste. The ingredients used to make a churro are wheat flour, salt, olive oil, water mixed together and fried in cooking oil. Mexican churros are often cut longer in length than the Spanish variety and are filled with a fruit or custard filling.
