Sweet Cinnamon Churros with Dulce de Leche Dip
Churros and dulce de leche, two popular treats in Mexico, are served together for a simple but rich dessert.
- All-purpose flour for dusting
- 1/2 pkg (17.3 oz/397 g) frozen puff pastry sheets (1 sheet), thawed
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter, melted, divided
- 3 tbsp (45 mL) sugar
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) Korintje Cinnamon
- 1/4 cup (50 mL) heavy whipping cream
- 2 tsp (10 mL) instant coffee granules
- 1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground cinnamon
- 1 can (13.4 oz/396 mL) dulce de leche (see Cook's Tip)
For churros, preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Line Cookie Sheet with Parchment Paper. Lightly sprinkle flat side of Large Grooved Cutting Board with flour. Unfold pastry onto cutting board; brush with 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the butter using Chef's Silicone Basting Brush. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the sugar mixture over pastry; lightly press into pastry using Baker's Roller®. Place Cookie Sheet, parchment-side down, over pastry. Invert both Cookie Sheet and cutting board; remove cutting board. Brush pastry with remaining butter; sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture, lightly pressing into pastry.
Cut pastry into four squares using Pizza Cutter. Cut each square into four strips; twist strips twice. Bake 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Slide parchment and churros onto Stackable Cooling Rack; cool churros 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, for dip, place cream into (1-cup/250-mL) Easy Read Measuring Cup. Microwave on HIGH 30 seconds or until warm. Add coffee granules and cinnamon; stir until dissolved. Combine cream mixture and dulce de leche in Classic Batter Bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 minute or until hot; whisk until smooth. Serve dip with churros.
