With the hit Disney movie Coco in theaters, I figured it was time for my Simple Caramel Churro Cookies!
A churro is just a sweet snack consisting of a strip of fried dough dusted with sugar or cinnamon…right? Well if you’ve ever enjoyed a churro in any part of the world, you KNOW they’re far more than JUST a sweet snack. They are Heavenly!! Simple ingredients, maybe. But it’s just about the most DELICIOUS “simple” snack you can have.
This variation on the shape of the basic churro is fun and easy. There is a pretty good chance I have all these ingredients, with the exception of the pie crusts, which are pretty easy to grab at the store when I pick up milk.
You will need:
2 Pillsbury Pie Crusts
12 Caramel Candy Cut in half
1/4 cup Unsalted Butter, Melted
1 cup Sugar
1 tbsp Cinnamon
Roll out the pie crusts on a lightly floured cutting board.
Use a small round cutter to cut out 24 pieces.
In a medium bowl prepare the sugar mixture, mixing together the sugar and cinnamon.
Place the cookies in a cookie tray until cool.
Brush melted butter on both sides.
Dip each cookie into the bowl of cinnamon sugar.
Coat all sides.
