Traditionally strips of dough that are deep fried and rolled in cinnamon and Sugar. This recipe which I got from a Pillsbury/OldElPaso Mexican cookbook. It's a simple concept.
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 (8 ounce) can refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
- 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine, melted
- Heat oven to 375.
- In small bowl mix sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
- Unroll dough;seperate into 4 rectangles. Press each to 6x4" rectangles, pressing perforations to seal.
- Brush tops of 2 rectangles with melted butter; sprinkle with about half of the sugar mixture. Top each with remaining rectagle; press edges lightly brusht tops with melted butter.
- With sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut each rectangle stack lengthwise into 6 strips. Twist each strip 3 times place on ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake 9-11 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Brush tops with any remaining melted butter; sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture.
It makes the idea of the churro plain and simple, but you should put aluminum foil down.
This was an exceptionally easy recipe to make. My 12 yr made this himself.
