Oven Baked Churros

If you aren't already friends with Kelaine...I'm sorry.  She rules.  Kelaine and her friend Josh came over for dinner this weekend and the lovely lady brought dessert.  She much have developed a taste for churros on a recent visit to Barcelona to visit recent ex-pat, Wage, who is currently in Barcelona with her hubby.  Apparently they had a wonderful time, ate amazing food, and saw lots of super cool stuff.  Sorry Wage, I think out invitation got lost in the mail.  It's cool, though.  You can invite us any time and we will pop on a flight and come visit you (having international friends is always very fabulous).  Anyway, back to churros.  They are a flaky, dessert pastry that are coated in cinnamon sugar.  They can be eaten happily as-is OR if you want to gain 25 lbs. in 2 months as I did in Spain, you can eat them while dipping them in melted chocolate.  Just saying.
Oven Baked Churros
1 package puffed pastry
3 Tbs. butter
2 Tbs. cinnamon
1/4 cup sugar

1.  Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  Lay out the puff pastry on a cutting board and cut into 1 inch strips.
2.  Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray and set the strips of puff pastry on the baking sheet.  Bake for 10 minutes until puffed up and golden brown.
2. Melt butter in a shallow dish so that it is easy to dip your churros into the butter.
3.  Mix together cinnamon and sugar and then pour the mixture on a plate.
4.  Set up an assembly line where you dip the churros in butter...
...then into the cinnamon sugar.
5.  Now you have delicious churros.
Hurry up and eat them.  They won't last long.

  1. Any time you want to eat churros, just make some enchiladas and I'll come a-running.

  2. OMG this look amazing. Kelaine please make these when I come home. Emily & Mark, not kidding you have an open invitation to come here. We would have so much fun. We would eat delicious food, drink great wine, and I guess would have to find other things to do to fill in our time between meals, haha. If you do, we are going to this redonk molecular gastronomy restaurant called Tickets. Starting this chant...HONEY-MOON. HONEY-MOON!!
