1.Churro Ice Cream Bowls


Makes 8 churro bowls

  • 1/4 cup butter /cubed
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 eggs
  1. cooking oil spray
  2. oil for frying
  3. cinnamon sugar

ice cream:

  1. hot fudge and caramel topping (optional)

6-12 cup muffin tin

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium/high heat – add butter, brown sugar, salt, and water – bring to a boil. As soon as the butter has fully melted and the mixture begins to boil, reduce the heat to medium/low and add in flour. Using a wooden spoon, stir until the dough comes together into a ball (about 1 minute). Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes before proceeding to the next step (to prevent accidentally cooking the eggs).
  2. Mix in the vanilla extract and add in the eggs, one at a time, being sure to fully incorporate each egg before adding the next. Once all the eggs are incorporated, transfer it to a piping bag with a small star tip.
  3. Invert a muffin tin and spray thoroughly with non-stick cooking spray. Pipe the dough around the inverted cups in spirals to form the bowls. Immediately transfer the tray to the freezer and freeze until solid (about 3 hours or overnight).
  4. Heat oil in a deep pot to 350˚F (175˚C). Remove the muffin tin from the freezer and flex it to release the churro bowls (you may need to also use a small knife under the bottom edge to initially releasing them). Return any extras to the freezer while you wait to fry.
  5. Fry them in batches, until nicely browned – no more than 3 at a time. Be sure to carefully tip them into the oil so they sink to the bottom. Once the desired color is reached remove them from the oil to a paper towel-lined plate. Dab off any excess oil then rolls them in a cinnamon-sugar mixture. Fill with you favorite ice cream and toppings. Enjoy!
