Author Notes

If you ever wondered how to prepare homemade churros, good news! They are reaaally easy.
To form the churros there are different options, one is to use a piping bag. If you choose this option I must warn you that the churros dough is dense, so you must manage the piping bag with a little strength.
I used a biscuit press, they are similar to a piping bag, but It’s easier to form them. —meriendasdepasion
