Ready for the best baked churros you’ve ever had? Whether or not you think churros are only ‘churros’ if they’re fried, our baked version is downright delicious, and your crowd is sure to love them. Better yet, this baked churro recipe couldn’t be easier to make—all you need is four ingredients and 30 minutes. These churros have a simple, delectable flavor, and the store-bought shortcut makes them one of the best desserts to keep in your back pocket. Pair them with maple syrup or a chocolate dipping sauce for even more sweet decadence.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°. Unfold and cut puff pastry sheets in half lengthwise, and cut each half crosswise into 1-inch-wide strips. Place strips on a lightly greased parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 2

Meanwhile, combine sugar and cinnamon. Remove pastry strips from oven, and dip in butter; roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Let stand on a wire rack 5 minutes or until dry.

These are wonderful, whether they're 'churros' or not, who cares? Don't rate something one star because they named it wrong. Call 'em whatever you want, but I've made them a million times and EVERYONE loves them, churro or not.

These taste great and are quick and easy to make, for me. They may not be the real McCoy, but what you might call a generic. It is amazing that some people have to make noise about a recipe, but make it and think it is good, but want to complain about its name. I rate a recipe as to my family and friends tasting and how hard or easy it was to prepare....Not its name. Would these taste any different if they were called a knock off of Churros? Remember also they are baked, not fried and better for you!

Of course these will never taste like an actual churro (since these are baked and not deep-fried). But if you want the churro taste without having a heart attack, then make these!

The results of this recipe are tasty, I'll give it that much... But they taste like puff pastry, not like an actual churro. I guess that's what I get for taking the cheater way instead of putting forth the effort to fry up the real deal.

Cannot possibly taste like real Churros as the real ones are made with a dough not puff pastry. These would be good but should not be called Churros.
