Cinnamon Cream Cheese Churros

I'm back!

How was your weekend?  Ours?  Well, busy.  I don't think I've sat down since my desk at work on Friday, until right now at this very moment.  We traveled to a family wedding out of town - the kids are exhausted, I'm exhausted, even our washing machine is exhausted.

And before I dive into these churros {to.die.for. by the way}, I need to pick a winner of my little kitchen accessory giveaway I had last week.  Bernice?  Are you out there?  Reading this post?  If so, please email me with your mailing address.

Okay, so I saw a version of these online last week - and as soon as I read the recipe, I hopped up, went to the kitchen and had them made within 30 minutes.  What can I say?  Sometimes I see something and HAVE TO MAKE THEM NOW.

And I'm sure glad I did.  I've found that these are delicious hot and fresh from the oven, yet they are equally good straight from the freezer.  They are simple to make {something your kids would love to help with!} and more than likely you probably have all of the 6 ingredients already in your kitchen.

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Churros
8 slices of whole wheat bread
4 oz. cream cheese
1 c. powdered sugar
3/4 stick of butter, melted
1 c. sugar
1 T. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Slice crusts off bread.  Using a rolling pin, flatten each piece of bread, then set aside.  In a one bowl, melt butter.  In another bowl combine cream cheese and powdered sugar.  In another bowl stir together sugar and cinnamon.

To assemble: take flattened slice of bread, place two spoonfuls of cream cheese mixture, roll up, dip in melted butter and roll in cinnamon/sugar mixture.

Place seam side down on a baking sheet.  Bake for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown.  Eat hot, or cool and store in the freezer.  Makes 8.

Here are the kids and I this past weekend.  My cup runneth over.  They are so much fun.  A lot of work, but so much fun.  Even though these ages {3.5 & 2} are enough to make any person tired, I just love their conversations, their imaginations, their spunk, their silliness and their love for their mom.

I'm trying to take it all in and relish every moment.

Have a great Monday everyone!

  1. I read something the other day about parenting that said "if you aren't tired than you aren't doing it right". It's kind of true... :)

  2. Oh, these look amazing! Busy weekends are fun but rough, I was ready for bed the minute I got up this morning.

  3. Oh my goodness churros are amazing but stuff cream cheese into the middle and I think I've gone to heaven!

  4. These look SO good, love the idea of the cream cheese filling!

  5. We are definitely on the same wave length!:) I am planning to make churros later this week! These look amazing and love that you put the cream cheese filling in the middle!
