Have you ever had a churro?
Like those ones that are three feet long at Costco?
Yeahh, those ones.
Have you ever tried making them at home?
I have, and sadly, I am not the best deep frier.
Hello, oil splatter, ALL. OVER. THE. DARN. KITCHEN.
I mean, seriously, oil. You had one job, and you HAD TO MESS IT UP.
As you can see, I really do not like frying.
But I love churros.
I CAN’T DECIDEEEEE.
Me yesterday when I came up with this recipe:
*Daydreaming about churros*
Hmm…. WHAT IF I BAKED THEM!?!?!
Brain high five!
I got the weirdest headache after that.
- 1 sheet of puff pastry, thawed
- 3 T flour
- ¾ c sugar
- ¼ tsp cinnamon
- 1 stick of butter, melted
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Dust your counter with the flour. Unfold the sheet of puff pastry, and roll it out until it is a rectangle that relatively is a 10×15 inch rectangle. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and brush the top with a little bit of the melted butter. Bake for about 10-15 minutes, or until golden and puffed.
- Mix the cinnamon and sugar together on a plate, and set aside.
- Let the puff pastry cool slightly before cutting them into long rectangles, however you cut them (I usually cut the sheet in half width-wise, and then into smaller rectangles after that, getting about 24 churros).
- Brush each churro with some of the melted butter, and then coat them in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
- Serve immediately and enjoy!
