Baked Cinnamon Sugar Churros ("Cheater Churros")

These little sticks of goodness are absolutely divine. Whenever I go to an amusement park or county fair, it is a requirement to get a churro. Something about the crunchy warm cinnamon and sugar gets me every time. I had never attempted to make them myself (I am a chicken when it comes to deep-frying things), but came across this recipe for BAKED churros. I seriously made them that very same day and I guarantee you will want to do the same thing! They turn out amazing . . . crunchy cinnamon goodness in 15 minutes flat!

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet frozen pastry puff sheet, thawed (usually they come in a 2 pack . . . if you want to make both sheets, just double the recipe)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.  Unfold and cut puff pastry sheets in half lengthwise, and cut each half crosswise into 1-inch-wide strips.  Place strips on a lightly greased parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  2. Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown (mine only took 8 minutes). Meanwhile, combine sugar and cinnamon.  Remove pastry sheets from oven and dip in butter, then roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture.  Let stand on a wire rack 5 minutes or until dry.
  3. Makes 18 churros.
