In a medium sized sauce pan over medium heat, combine water 5 Tablespoons sugar, salt, and 4 Tablespoons of oil. Bring to a boil and remove from heat. Stir in flour until mixture forms a ball.

Place a large open star icing tip (Wilton 8B), inside a large 18” pastry bag, and fill with churro batter. This will be hot, so handle carefully.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, and pipe out churro mixture to desired length. Place in freezer and let harden, about 25 minutes.

Heat oil in a heavy stock pot or deep skillet to 375 degrees F. Keep candy thermometer clipped to the side of the pan, and watch the temperature, try to keep at 375 F.

Once oil has hit temperature, carefully place the piped churros into the oil, and cook until golden brown. Place on paper towels and allow to drain and cool.

Combine the 1 cups sugar and 2 teaspoons sugar, and pour into paper bag. Place the cooked churros inside the bag with the sugar mixture, fold over the edge a couple times and shake covering the churros.
