Who said making churros needs to be an oily, messy activity? Enjoy the delicious churro flavor minus the mess and calories with these mouthwatering churro cookies.

Yield: approximately 32 cookies



2 sticks margarine

2/3 cup sugar

1 large egg

½ teaspoon vanilla sugar

2 ¼ cups flour

½ teaspoon baking powder


½ cup sugar

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

½ cup confectioners’ sugar

½ cup hot water

Chocolate sauce:

¾ cup whip topping, unwhipped

½ cup chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 375°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

For the cookies: Beat margarine and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg and vanilla and beat until combined. Stir in flour and baking powder until just combined.

Transfer dough to a large piping bag fitted with a large star tip. Pipe out the dough into 3–4-inch logs on the prepared cookie sheets, making sure to leave about 2 inches of space between logs.

Bake until lightly golden brown, approximately 8–10 minutes.

Allow to cool.

For the topping: In a bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon.

In a separate bowl, combine confectioners’ sugar with hot water. This mixture will be runny.

Dip each cookie into the glaze and then into the sugar-cinnamon mixture to fully coat.

For the dipping sauce: In a pot over low heat, heat whip topping. Pour over chocolate chips and allow to sit for 3 minutes before stirring to combine.
