Let's Make It
Mix 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon in shallow bowl until blended. Reserve for later use.
Bring water, butter and remaining sugar to boil in medium saucepan on medium-high heat. Add flour; cook and stir on low heat 1 min. or until mixture pulls away from side of pan. Remove from heat. Add eggs; beat until blended. Stir in vanilla. Spoon into pastry bag fitted with large star tip.
Heat oil in deep fryer to 350ºF. Pipe dough, in batches, into 5-inch strips into hot oil; cook 3 min. or until each churro is golden brown on both sides, turning after 1 min. Remove from oil with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Add warm churros, 1 at a time, to reserved cinnamon sugar; toss to evenly coat.
