I am a sucker for anything remotely caramel flavored. When I saw Cookies & Cups post a recipe for these churro sticks I was pumped! I thought this is something a little different for the shower.
This recipe is pretty simple and the possibilities are endless! And honestly, who doesn't like anything rolled around in cinnamon and sugar?!?
Dulce de Leche Churro Sticks
1 box of refrigerated pie crusts
1/2 can dulce de leche
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2-3 teaspoons cinnamon
1/3 sticks butter, melted
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
I floured my counter and rolled out both pie crusts.
Then I took about half my can of dulce de leche and spread out all over one pie crust.
I covered the first pie crust with the second and used my pizza cutter to cut strips.
I then placed the strips on my baking sheets and used a fork to seal the edges of the sticks.
I baked them in the oven for 20 minutes until they were a light, golden brown.
While they were baking I mixed my granulated sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl.
When the sticks came out of the oven, I had to use my pizza cutter to cut off a little dulce de leche that leaked out and burnt. Ooops.... No harm done! You just have to roll with it in the kitchen.
Next you brush each side of each stick with melted butter and roll it in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
Set on a baking rack to cool a little bit, but these are great eaten warm or at room temperature!
If you don't like dulce de leche, you could fill these with Nutella, caramel sauce and diced apples, peanut butter, whatever your heart desires! Or just bake the pie strips and roll them in cinnamon sugar!
Until next time,
