Cinnamon Churros, the new Poor Man’s Pie

As I’ve mentioned before, one of my favorite sites is “Six Sisters’ Stuff”. I love the look of their site and everything they post is very user friendly and down to earth. When I was at the grocery store the other day, I decided I wanted to buy some puff pastry even though I had never baked with it. It just so happened that the Baked Cinnamon Sugar Churros post appeared in my Facebook feed yesterday morning. What a coincidence! Puff Pastry The frozen puff pastry comes in two pieces. Each piece is folded into thirds  and must be thawed for about 45 minutes before using.Frozen Puff Pastry After the dough was thawed, I cut it length-wise into three pieces and then cut each of those pieces into six pieces. I decided to stack the pieces, and brush on the (1/4 cup)  melted butter and sprinkle each piece with the cinnamon (2 tsps.) and  sugar (1/2 cup) mixture.Churros ready for the oven I baked the Churros for 10 minutes at 450 degrees. The taste reminds me of “Poor Mans Pie” that my mother used to make with the left-over pieces of pie crust; just pie crust, sugar, cinnamon and sugar. Cinnamon Sugar Churro I decided they weren’t quite done enough, so I popped them back in the oven for a few more minutes. Unfortunately, I forgot them. Note to self: Set the timer!IMG_1379 smaller
