I’m not really into frying our food so I’m always looking for ways to take fried food and bake them so they’ll taste just as good.  The kids love Churros, but I didn’t know how they would taste baked, but I gave it a try anyways.  These turned out delicious!  Of course they don’t have the exact same crispiness like the fried ones, however they have less grease  and they taste every bit as good. They’re a little crispy on the outside and a little chewy on the inside!   In fact, they were so good that I can’t really say how many this recipe makes because the kids were eating them as fast as I took them out of the cinnamon sugar mixture!
