Churro Cream Puffs


3/4 cup all purpose flour
6 tbsp unsalted butter cut into 6 pieces
1 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
4 large eggs at room temperature, divided

For the Churro Topping:
2 tsp ground cinnamon, divided
1 tbsp granulated sugar
2 tbsp honey
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
pinch of table salt
1/3 cup powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly grease or line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Measure your flour and set aside.
Bring butter, salt, sugar and 3/4 cups water to a boil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Immediately remove from heat and stir in flour all at once. Return to heat, and stir with a wooden spoon for 1 to 2 minutes, or until dough is smooth and forms a ball. Transfer dough to the bowl of a stand mixer and let rest for 5 minutes.
Add 3 eggs, 1 at a time, beating until mixture is smooth and glossy. Spoon into a pastry bag fitted with a tip.
Pipe dough onto prepared pan into 1 1/2 inch rounds (1 1/2 inch high). Smooth out peaks and round tops with a moistened finger.
Whisk together remaining one egg and 1 tsp water. Brush tops of dough with egg mixture. Bake at 425 degrees F for 5 minutes, then reduce heat to 375 degrees and bake an additional 30 minutes, or until puffed and golden brown. Turn oven off and let sit in closed oven for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely on wire racks.

For the Churro Topping:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine 1 tsp ground cinnamon with 1 tbsp granulated sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
Microwave honey in a microwave-safe bowl on HIGH for 20 seconds, or just until it starts to boil. Brush tops of cream puffs with honey and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Place cream puffs on a parchment lined baking sheet in an even layer and bake for 5 minutes. Let cool for 30 minutes.
Add cream, salt, cinnamon and sugar in a 1 pint whipped cream dispenser. Charge with 1 N2o cream charger and shake.

Using the isi injector tool pierce the pastry puff and press the whipped cream dispenser lever to fill the pastry with whipped cream.
