Churro Bites

Serving Size: 24

This recipe is such a great alternative if you don't feel like deep frying and still want a satisfying cinnamon-sugar treat. The outsides have a great crunch from the cinnamon and sugar coating, making a light crumb.

Churro Bites

  • all-purpose flour
  • 0.5 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1 milk
  • 0.5 tsp egg
  • 0.33 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 0.5 cup unsalted butter
  • 0.25 tsp granulated sugar
  • 0.5 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1.5 cup all purpose flour
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixture, beat together the sugar and butter on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until well combined.
  5. With the mixer on low speed, slowly alternate adding the flour mixture and milk, starting and ending with the flour. Mix until just incorporated. Mixture will look very creamy.
  6. Use a small cookie scoop to fill each muffin tin and bake for 15-18 minutes, or until just golden brown.

Topping

  • 0.25 cup butter (1/2 stick)
  • 0.5 cup cinnamon
  1. While the churro bites are baking, melt butter in a bowl and combine cinnamon and sugar in a shallow dish.
  2. When churro bites are done, immediately remove from the pan and dip each bite in the butter and roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  3. Enjoy immediately or store in an airtight container for 2-3 days.
