Chanukah is always a holiday full of light and joy. We enjoy time with our families and friends eating deep fried foods, playing dreidel, and giving gifts.

But this year is different. It is more special than usual… but why?

Because this year, when we light the candles, we are going to ask God for a lot of light in the world; we are going to ask to witness a miracle, the miracle of Chanukah, just as happened many years ago with the Maccabees.

With God’s help, may there be only peace and light in the world.

Am Yisrael Chai!

Makes 6 pastries


Churro Alfajores

  • granulated sugar, to dust

  • cinnamon, to dust

  • churrera or pastry bag with star-shaped tip

  • oil, for frying

  • dulce de leche



In a medium pot, heat the water with the butter and salt. Once it boils, add the flour and stir with a spatula until a paste is formed.


Remove from the heat, put the batter in a mixer bowl, and begin to beat. Add the eggs, one at a time, with the vanilla. Once it is creamy, put it inside the pastry bag with the tip and cut off the edge.


On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, form discs of batter. Place in the freezer for one hour.


Preheat a pot over medium/high heat with plenty of oil. Gradually add the churros and fry them until they are golden brown. Remove to a plate lined with paper towel, then roll in sugar.


Allow to cool. Once cold, fill the churros with dulce de leche.
