I LOVE churros. I love churros in a let’s-fly-to-Disney-just-so-I-can-get-a-fresh-churro kinda way. Unfortunately, David has gone into lock-down bar exam prep mode. So…. no spontaneous Disney trip for us. Instead we have a silent house with loads of cookies and caffeine. Well . . . semi-silent?
Apparently I make noise when I bake. Like . . . a lot of noise. Singing. Talking to the dog. Talking to myself. Dancing with the dog. Tapping spatulas on mixing bowls. Drumming my fingernails on the counter. Beaters on. Beaters off. I would not have even realized all this until David’s “SSSSSHHHHHHHHHH” came from the living room. O.o whoops.
So now David has a brand new pair of SUPER nice noise-cancellation headphones. And I’m singing and baking!
Churro Cookies w/ Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting
These churro cookies could be said to be inspired by many things. My Uncle Steve’s family passed down a recipe for swedish cream wafers that inspired the light pie pastry sandwich with cream filling idea. And Granny used to give mum and her siblings leftover pie crust rolled in cinnamon sugar. Churro cookies are basically buttery warm pie pastry sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and sandwiched with caramel cream cheese frosting. 🙂 🙂 🙂 I <3 cookies. and cinnamon sugar. and caramel. and pie crust. and all the things.
I took these churro cookies to my work’s cinco de mayo pot luck, and they disappeared! (And leftovers went home to my friend Jacob, who is trying to gain weight… -_- ugh. i hate him.) I love that these little cookies are easy enough to make for a family party but elegant enough for all sorts of occasions! So go on! Indulge in a little pie dough with these churro cookies!
And don’t forget the caramel cream cheese frosting!
PS – My fluffy little helper definitely started pushing the boundaries of how close he is permitted to the work station…
