Today in the kitchen I cooked up something special for my Spanish 1 class at co-op to celebrate how great the kids are doing and add a bit of the Spanish culture to our class. Our text book is called Churros y Chocolate so I chose churros.
It was fun, simple, and I wanted to share the process with you. You may want to make them for one of your lessons when covering the Spanish culture. ¡Son delicioso!
I found a simple recipe online here, http://allrecipes.com/recipe/churros/. It was so easy I cooked four batches up in an hour.
I did make one change in the process. The recipe calls for putting the dough in a piping bag. I did not have any and tried to substitute a Ziploc bag with the end cut off. The Ziploc bag did not work because the dough was hot.
Instead I just rolled the dough in my hand like you would Playdoh. This would be a fun way to get your little ones involved in this cooking process.
They were so delicious and everyone enjoyed them.
