    1                    recipe Basic Pate a Choux
                         Oil for deep frying:
    4      Inches        Neutral Flavored Vegetable Oil In
                         Large Heavy Pot
      1/2  Cup           white sugar
    3      Tablespoons   cinnamon
 
 Load dough into pastry bag fitted with medium star tip. Heat oil to 375
 degrees. Sift together cinnamon and sugar. Holding pastry bag above hot oil,
 gently squeeze bag and slice off 1-inch sections of paste with paring knife.
 Pipe out only as many fritters as will fit comfortably in the oil. When
 fritters are golden, after 23 minutes, flip them over to cook the other
 side. Lift out of oil with slotted spoon and drain on layers of paper
 towels. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture while still warm.
 Yield: enough for a party
 The cinnamon sugar topping on these fritters is reminiscent of that used on
 Latin American beignets such as churros.
