I’m on my way to Disney’s Social Media Moms Celebration and I can’t wait! Any trip to Disney World wouldn’t be complete without enjoying some of their signature recipes. I joined in with a group of amazing bloggers to create Disney inspired treats to celebrate!
My treat is inspired by the famous Churros of Walt Disney World. Traditional churros are fried…and I have pretty hit or miss luck when it comes to frying things. These churro cookies are baked, so they’re ridiculously easy and unlikely to cause any kitchen disasters.
Start with refrigerated pie dough. You can always make your own dough, but I’m a big fan of shortcuts! Make sure your dough is room temperature before you unroll it to avoid cracking. You can use any cookie cutter you have on hand, but I thought a Disney inspired treat deserved a Disney cookie cutter, too! With strategic cutter placement you will have minimal waste. You can take the leftover dough and roll and cut again or you can make scrap cookies. Place your cookies on a baking mat or parchment paper. Brush on melted butter, then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake according to the directions on your pie crust packaging. Total bake time will be shorter than a full crust, so watch closely. My cookies only took five minutes.
The cookies are best served warm, and with chocolate dipping sauce. Just melt a little of your favorite chocolate at half power in the microwave. Stir in a bit of cream. It’s as easy to make as the cookies, right? Make sure you check out all of the amazing Disney inspired recipes we’re sharing today, and don’t forget to follow along on social media May 7-10, 2015 to see all of the #DisneySMMC fun!
