Expert Tips

Traditional churros are strips of dough that are deep fried and rolled in cinnamon and sugar. We simplify them by baking crescent dough strips and sprinkling them with cinnamon-sugar--a quick way to a crispy, sugary treat!
Melt chocolate chips in the microwave in 30-second intervals until melted. Serve with freshly baked churros.
