|Cinnamony-sugary, non-fried goodness|
After compiling a little list of Spanish desserts, I decided on churros. Cinnamon & sugar make me exceedingly happy. Thinking more, I had the idea of a "lighter", less-fattening churro. Hmmmm... but how? BAKED!!! So I googled "baked churros" & found THIS, mouth watering (& entertainingly blogged) Baked Churros Munchies from My Tasty Treasures recipe. This is brilliant (& I can say so because it's not MY recipe). The base is a cream puff base. Ohhh it just gets better. Make it, you'll thank me. Just leave out the chocolate sauce. I did & it was NOT missed! The recipe says it yields 30 BUT mine only yielded 20. Not sure if I made mine too big (HOW CAN these be TOO BIG? ;) ) But I decided to make 2 batches, so I yielded 40!!!

*Lishie facts- Churros, sometimes known as the "Spanish Donut", originated in Spain.
