INGREDIENTS

Servings
  • 1 qt. vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 7-3/4 oz. OREO Small Cookie Pieces, divided
  • 13 oz. water
  • 6-1/2 oz. butter
  • 3-1/2 oz. granulated sugar, divided
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 10 oz. all-purpose flour
  • 11 oz. eggs

DIRECTIONS

  1. Using  2-3/4-inch round cookie cutter, trace 32 circles on parchment paper, spaced 1- inch apart, to create templates for piping churros.
  2. Combine  ice cream and 5 oz. OREO Pieces. Freeze at least 2 hours or until firm enough to scoop. Portion 16 ice cream balls using #16 scoop; flatten slightly. Freeze on sheet pan until ready to use.
  3. Meanwhile,  bring water, butter, 1/2 oz. sugar and salt to boil in saucepan. Add flour all at once, stirring with wooden spoon until mixture forms a ball. Remove from heat. Gradually add eggs, mixing until incorporated after each addition. Stir in remaining 2.75 oz. OREO Pieces just until combined. Spoon batter into pastry bag fitted with 3/8-inch plain tip.
  4. Beginning  at center of circle template, pipe a spiral of batter to fill each circle. Carefully slide off 1 churro at a time into 350°F deep fryer. Cook until golden brown on both sides. Remove with slotted spoon or spider; drain well. Sprinkle with 2 tsp. sugar; keep warm. Repeat with remaining batter circles.
  5. When  ready to serve, place 1 ice cream portion on flat side of 1 churro. Top with second churro to create sandwich.
  6. Variation:

    Sprinkle warm churros with cinnamon-sugar instead of granulated sugar.
