Baked Pumpkin Churros covered in cinnamon sugar are the perfect fall and winter dessert. They’re baked, not fried, which means you can eat more of them!
In case these Baked Pumpkin Churros didn’t give it away, I’m finally in the fall mood!
Though the weather has definitely been having some serious mood swings lately, I was able to wear my boots, a big scarf and a sweater this weekend without sweating! That’s a total win in my book.
Another huge win this weekend? These pumpkin churros. (Not to be confused with regular classic churros that are fried.)
I took a batch to a friend’s surprise 30th birthday party and everyone loved them. His grandma even came up to me and gave me lots of compliments! You know you’ve made it when grandmas like your desserts. Weekend = made.
These churros are very easy to make. They make look super fancy because they require using a piping bag and a star tip, but I promise they’re not complicated at all. Just follow the step-by-step instructions in the recipe and they’ll come out perfect every time!
If you’re not a baker and don’t have a clue what a piping bag and a star tip is, here’s what you need.
The 1M star tip gives you a thinner churro than you’re probably used to seeing at restaurants, but I prefer it because it just means I can eat more. Also, it’s a common size tip that’s often used for piping frosting swirls onto cupcakes, so you’ll get lots of use out of it.
One of my favorite things about these pumpkin churros is that they’r baked, not fried.
Now don’t get me wrong – I’m not against eating fried food. Lord knows I eat it when I’m out at a restaurant. But deep frying food at home is such a pain in the butt and isn’t always necessary. Take these churros for example – they’re absolutely delicious baked! They still have the same crunchy texture on the outside while being light and fluffy on the inside. They’re still covered in a sweet cinnamon sugar coating and can still be dunked in your favorite dessert sauce! Super important.
I dipped mine in some dulce de leche, but you could also serve it with a chocolate sauce or some vanilla icing dip.
