Easy baked churros stuffed with melty cream cheese! An easy 20-minute treat that will be the hit of the party!

Ingredients

  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 12 ounces cream cheese (you’ll need to 8 ounce blocks of cream cheese but won’t use all of the second block), I used fat free
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • optional: chocolate sauce or caramel sauce, for dipping
  • Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 and generously grease a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  • Lay your thawed puff pastry sheets out on a clean flat surface. Slice the blocks of cream cheese lengthwise into 12 thin slices. Lay 2 slices of cream cheese end to end on one end of the puff pastry. Lay 2 more end to end in the middle of the puff pastry, and 2 more at the opposite end of the puff pastry from the first 2 slices of cream cheese. (See step by step pictures above for visuals) Repeat process with second puff pastry.
  • Use a pizza cutter to cut the puff pastries into 3 equal sections. Pinch the sides of the individual puff pastry sections to enclose the cream cheese inside. Cut into two equal pieces. (See step by step pictures above for visuals)
  • Lay pastries out on prepared pan, careful to leave about 2 inches between each one so they don’t touch. Bake 10-12 minutes until golden brown. While they are baking, whisk together sugar and cinnamon in a large bowl. Remove from oven and brush with melted butter on both sides of each pastry. 
  • Place the pastries in the bowl of cinnamon-sugar, tossing to coat. Sprinkle with powdered sugar if desired (for a fancy touch) and serve with warmed chocolate sauce or caramel sauce for dipping if desired.
