baked churros

    January 16, 2018

    I know, I know, everyone’s been starting the new year with juice cleanses/sugar free challenges/new body resets, and I’ll admit, I’ve been tempted to start eating healthier myself. Then these churros happened. And I lost all self control.

    Have you ever made a choux pastry before? When I was testing these a week or two ago, I started off by making these Pâte à Choux pastries from the Kitchn (y’all know I loooove the Kitchn), just to get the hang of it. Traditional churros are basically fried choux pastries, piped into logs and rolled in cinnamon sugar. They’re the best, and actually surprisingly easy to whip up! Don’t let the stovetop and seemingly-intimidating-piping scare you.

    Side note: these churros kinda remind me of the cronuts I had in New York (here), and now I’m actually having post-NYC withdrawals. Anyone else? Where did you go for the holidays?
