Expert Tips

  • Traditional churros are strips of dough that are deep fried and rolled in cinnamon and sugar. We simplify them by baking crescent dough strips and sprinkling them with cinnamon-sugar--a quick way to a crispy, sugary treat!
  • Melt chocolate chips in the microwave in 30-second intervals until melted. Serve with freshly baked churros.
