Spanish Churros

This recipe is part of our Natvia Around The World Collection Spanish Churros were first made in the 16th century in the mountain grasslands of Spain. For the mountain shepherds, churros had become a daily staple, originally they were similar to breadsticks. They were either eaten plain or with cinnamon rolled in sugar. The unique star shape was developed as time went by. This ensured the fluffy inside texture is cooked through and gave the churros their the crispy outside. During the 16th century, well-known Spanish travelers brought churros to every part of the new world. They become popular quite quickly. Primarily they were most popular in Mexico and South America, but the history of the churros is ancient. There are different stories of where the churros actually originated from but whatever the case we can't be thankful enough!
