Churro Cookies

Updated: May 23, 2022

The cookie that will remind you of the happiest moments of your life

When my husband asked me to make a churro cookie, I immediately saw it in my mind as a cookie filled with that royal icing you get it with at the theme parks. After many failed attempts of making a cream filled cookie they dulce de leche churro cookie was born. The filling is slightly salted which cuts through some of that sugar coating and rounds out the flavors.

This cookie is a great mix of sweet crunch, soft dough and gooey center. Texture and flavor compositions are really important to me when creating bakes. It's easy to make a treat sweet, but when a symphony of flavors are flying over your taste buds, that's how you know you've got a really good bake.

"Much like life, cookies will crumble. But it's the sweetness we can choose to remember." -Anonymous

3/4 c brown sugar

1/2 c sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp baking powder

2 tsp corn starch

1 tsp salt

Cream together the butter and sugars. Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix till combined. In a separate bowl mix together all the dry ingredients and mix into the wet ingredients. Scoop out 1-1/2 inch balls of dough. Create a well in the center and fill with 1/4 tsp dulce de leche. Close cookie dough up around that and roll in cinnamon sugar. Let set in fridge for 1 hour (or up to 24 hours). Place 6 cookies on a light cookie sheet, bake at 350°F for 10 minutes or until bottom has set but the tops are slightly golden brown.

Break into a cookie and enjoy
