Baked Cinnamon Sugar Churros combine all the things people love in some thing sweet and delicious. They can be served warm (always yummy), they are loaded with cinnamon (always perfect and loved by all), and they combine a crust with sweet sugary insides (yum, again). So make these treats using this simple process and you can serve them at the dinner table tonight. You and your family will thoroughly enjoy these snacks. The original recipe, a churro, is from Latin America. It is a deep fried bit of dough that is made according to the standards of the local culture. In France, for example, the churro is made from choux dough and results in a very airy, lightly eggy result. In many places the churro is dipped in chocolate, and not cinnamon sugar. But what is it all about? Tasting delicious, and cinnamon sugar is a classic North American flavor that is loved and enjoyed by most people.

A churro is quick and easy to make, and frying it means a pretty high fat dessert. This recipe uses puff pastry to give the snack its lightness and then bakes it in the oven rather than frying it. This can also give a great result, if some what different flavor notes. Still, it will be delicious. Be sure not to let the snack get too cool before you brush the melted butter on them and roll them in the cinnamon sugar. If the pastry gets too cold, the butter tends to make it greasy and some times even the cinnamon sugar will not hold well to the pastry.

This is a super simple snack that is more about assembling than baking. Using frozen, pre-made puffs means a quick task when ever you want to make these up. And you could put them on the table without the various dressings and let every one make his or her alone. Add melted chocolate, a simple icing or glaze to the mix. Then every one can dip as they like. Enjoy this snack soon.
