Chosen Bites: Dust off your frying pans

While latkes and doughnuts are obvious choices for Hanukka, chef Laura Frankel offers a more exotic alternative.

I love latkes and am head over heels over doughnits. But churros (Spanish fritters) are a tasty alternative during Hanukka. Made from the classic Pate a Choux paste, these airy and delicate pastries are a snap to whip up.
My son loves these light and crispy Mexican crullers. They are delicious and addictive. We serve them for desserts, breakfast and during Hanukka. The dough is easy and can be made a couple of hours ahead of using.
I serve the churros with chocolate dipping sauce or fruit preserves….
