  1. Combine water, milk, vanilla, butter, salt, 2 tbsp sugar, and ¼ tsp cinnamon into a medium pot and medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring frequently, then lower heat.
  2. Add in flour and mix continuously until fully incorporated. Mixture should form a thick, smooth ball and appears to dry out slightly in about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Once thickened, transfer mixture to a large bowl and beat for 2-3 minutes to cool, then add in eggs one at a time and beat again. Dough should begin form and be smooth and creamy.
  4. Add dough into a piping bag with a star tip (tip is optional), then chill for 20-30 minutes. Once cooled, pipe stripes of dough into a lined air fryer basket being mindful not to overcrowd.
  5. Air fry until golden, 8 to 10 minutes at 380 degrees F.
  6. In a medium shallow bowl, combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Set aside. Immediately out of the air fryer, roll churros in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  7. Repeat with remaining dough.
