We have people over a lot, and, while I love offering dessert, I don’t always want to be hiding away in the kitchen while everyone else is having fun. Sometimes you just need a super quick and easy dessert to throw together, such as these Baked Cinnamon and Sugar Churros made from puff pastry.
They are not fancy, but they have just the right amount of sweet on which to end the night. Plus, they take me about 20 minutes to prepare – 10 of which are in the oven baking.
- Puff Pastry Sheets
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tbsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground cloves
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Unfold the puff pastry sheets and cut into 1/2"-1" strips with pizza cutter. While I didn't in this photograph, I encourage you to then cut the sticks in half length wise. The best way I can describe it is that the sticks cook more sturdy and less airy.
Place the sticks on parchment paper on a cookie sheet about 1/2" apart.
Bake 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
Now, there are 2 options for covering with the sweet stuff: 1 Dip the sticks into melted butter and then roll into the cinnamon and sugar mixture until covered. Set aside for a few minutes to set. OR 2. Brush the sticks with melted butter using a pastry brush and toss cinnamon and sugar mixture on top. Once done with each, carefully flip and do the back.
