oven-baked churros

I have fond memories of getting churros at the mall when I was a young girl. The most exciting churro experience was when I was about 4 years old I lost my tooth while eating a churro. The churros were always so warm, sweet and sugary with just the right amount of crunch. These were a big hit with my kids, especially dipped in chocolate mousse dip!

oven-baked churros (Southern Living Magazine, May 2011)
1 (17.3 ounce) package frozen puff pastry sheets, thawed
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 450. Unfold and cut puff pastry sheets in half lengthwise, and cut each half crosswise into 1-inch-wide strips. Place strips on a lightly greased parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown.
Meanwhile, combine sugar and cinnamon. Remove pastry strips from oven, and dip in butter; roll in cinnamon-sugar mixture. Let stand on a wire rack 5 minutes or until dry.
