Homemade Cheater Churro Dessert Recipe

Pretty much anything cinnamon sugar in my house is a favorite. Of course I make my Perfect Snickerdoodle Cookies on the regular. But there are also my Churro Bars and my Snickerdoodle Krispie Treats that rank tops on the requested list.

Also, Snickerdoodle/Churro is basically used interchangeably in the dessert world in terms of flavor profile. Sorry ’bout that, I don’t make the rules.

Anyhow, if you’ve ever made homemade churros, you know, while they are exceptionally difficult, they DO involve deep frying…which I avoid at all costs. And no, not for calorie/health reasons…strictly for clean up. I HATE the splatter/smell/leftover oil situation. I’m lazy, I’m aware.

So whenever I find a cheater version of anything that needs to be fried, I’m all about it. And include cream cheese? It’s like a dream come true.

Cream Cheese Filled Cinnamon Churros

These are so super easy, and while I encourage you make them like I did first, I also encourage you to try different fillings…like Nutella (YES), dulce de leche (HOLY !!), even frosting (DESSERT DREAM).

For this recipe, you just mix up some cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla.

How to Make Cream Cheese Filled Churros:

Cut off the crusts of good old white bread…

And then roll them flat with a rolling pin…

NOTE: Don’t let the bread sit out too long because it will dry out quickly and break as you’re rolling it up.

Spread a heaping tablespoon of the cream cheese mixture on top of the bread and spread it out evenly.

Roll them up tightly, then dip each roll into melted butter and then cinnamon sugar.

It doesn’t get much better.

    Sigh. I *would* see this post right after I used up the last of my cream cheese to make an icebox peanut butter pie…will give it a go this week.

    Going to make these right now! Do you know how long they’ll keep in the fridge? (I’m assuming they need to be kept cold if they aren’t eaten right away because of the cream cheese?)
    Thanks in advance!

      They will keep for up to 3 days in the fridge, but I would recommend reheating them in the oven to serve, so they will get crispy!
