Let's Make It
Mix 3/4 cup sugar and 1-1/2 tsp. cinnamon in medium bowl. Combine COOL WHIP and remaining cinnamon; refrigerate until ready to use.
Bring water, butter and remaining sugar to boil in medium saucepan on medium-high heat. Stir in flour; cook on low heat 1 min. or until mixture forms a ball, stirring constantly with wooden spoon. Transfer to medium bowl. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating with mixer after each until blended. Add sour cream; mix well.
Heat oil in large saucepan to 350ºF. Spoon dough into heavy-weight pastry bag fitted with medium-star tip. (Or, spoon into a cake decorator's tube fitted with star tip.) Carefully squeeze 3 or 4 (4-inch-long) strips of dough into hot oil; cook 2 to 3 min. or until golden brown on both sides, turning after 1 min. Remove from oil with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining dough.
Roll in cinnamon sugar while still warm. Serve with COOL WHIP mixture.
Prepare using regular ground cinnamon.
Add zest of 1 orange to churro dough with the sour cream.
