Pour water into a medium sauce pan. Add salt. Bring the water to a boil and add the flour.
With a wooden spatula, mix vigorously until well combined and you don’t see any lumps (the dough should be very soft & sticky. You should mix this for about 5 minutes or until smooth).
Let the churro dough cool down until you can work with it (don’t cool completely). Transfer into a piping bag fitted with a star tip.
Pipe onto a sheet of baking paper or a silicone mat into candy cane shapes (3-inch long/7.5cm).
Heat up the oil in a large skillet/frying pan. Meanwhile: Prepare the gingerbread flavoured sugar by mixing gingerbread spice with sugar and set aside.
When the oil is hot enough, drop the churros in. Fry them until they have nice golden brown color and are done inside.
Transfer them onto a sheet of paper kitchen towel to get rid of the excess oil and coat each one in gingerbread sugar.
