How to Make this Easy Puff Pastry Dessert
Making Puff Pastry Churros could not be easier. To start, defrost your puff pastry according to the package directions. Then spread out the pastry sheet onto your baking pan. I like to use parchment paper as a liner.
Next, with a pastry wheel or knife, cut the puff pastry in half and again vertically into strips. You should have about 16 strips give or take a few.
After cutting the puff pastry into strips, separate them on the baking sheet so they are not too close together. About 1″ or so apart. Now place them into the oven for approximately 8-10 minutes. Remember all oven temps can vary so you may have to adjust your temp accordingly.
Now, prepare the coating which is melted butter, and mix together the sugar and cinnamon.
Once the puff pastry churros are golden brown, remove them from the oven. Let them cool slightly before coating them in melted butter and rolling in the sugar-cinnamon mixture. That’s it! You’re treats are ready to eat!
While I would never discourage anyone from attempting the original recipe, this quick and easy churro dupe is perfect for those short on time. Impress your guests with these churro-inspired treats without the hassle of making them from scratch.
