Home-made Churros

These Churros were fun and simple to make. Don't do like I did though and think you've read the directions right by adding to much sugar in the water so it was a goobery mess.  Thank goodness for the second go at them.  These skinny treats had my house smelling like summer and my tastebuds wanting more.  Also, be careful because you will be working with hot oil while frying these bad boys up.

1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
In a shallow bowl add the first two ingredients and mix up.
