Churros are delicious, but I don’t like deep frying so its something I don’t do often. These churro bites come together with just a handful of ingredients and are a fun snack to make for guests. I used store bought caramel sauce, but if you have the time I strongly recommend making this Pumpkin Caramel Sauce. So good!!!!!!!!!!!

These are best served immediately, but I did freeze most of them and then popped in the microwave for a few minutes to defrost and they were still delicious.

Pumpkin Spice Churro Bites and Caramel Sauce

Ingredients

  • 1 puff pastry sheet-thawed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter-melted
  • 1 cup caramel sauce

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 F and line cookie sheet with parchment paper, silpat, or spray with cooking spray.
  • Unfold the puff pastry and cut it in half (lengthwise), then cut into strips (less than 1 inch wide)
  • Gently transfer the strips onto baking sheets and bake 8 to 10 minutes, until golden brown.
  • While the churros are baking melt the butter and set aside.
  • Combine cinnamon, pumpkin spice and sugar and set aside.
  • While they are still warm, roll baked churro sticks into melted butter ( don't soak them, just coat all the sides) then roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Roll and dip one stick at the time.
  • Serve with caramel sauce. Churro bites freeze well, just heat in microwave for 20 seconds to defrost.
