Repeat process with second egg and mix in vanilla.
Transfer dough to a large piping bag fitted with a large star tip.
Pipe dough onto the prepared stacked baking sheet, either into 7 1/2-inch lengths for longer churros and cutting with scissors after piping each.
Bake in center of preheated oven until set and golden brown, about 28 – 33 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a shallow baking dish whisk together granulated sugar with the remaining cinnamon.
