The Perfect Churro Cookies

Soft and chewy sugar cookies filled with cinnamon sugar and dipped in a cinnamon chip ganache, making the perfect churro cookies.
I’m really excited to be teaming up with Food Stirs to bring you new and easy recipes using their organic baking mixes and kits. I first heard about Food Stirs while I was away on a work trip. As I was getting ready in my hotel room one morning, I had Rachel Ray on in the background. Her first guest that day happened to be Sarah Michelle Gellar, co-founder of Food Stirs. As she talked about the products and the quality of ingredients they use (the fact that everything is made with real ingredients, free of artificial preservatives, dyes, and flavors), my interest was peaked and I wanted to test it out.
(I may be an advocate for baking from scratch, but I can totally appreciate the convenience and ease of boxed mixes – especially when baking with kids. I just want to make sure it tastes as good as something homemade!)
 My Sweet Tooth Sugar Cookie Mix arrived in the mail just last week and I knew immediately that I wanted to turn it into a Churro Cookie, inspired by my Churro Cake. To give these cookies my own little twist, I added cinnamon to the ingredients called for on the box, as well as a cinnamon and brown sugar mixture in the center of the cookie and a little dip in cinnamon chip ganache at the end. (If you haven’t had cinnamon chip ganache before, let me just say this, your world is about to change. You’re welcome.
I love that the Food Stirs mix only has six ingredients in it and only calls for the addition of butter and an egg. Easy, peasy!
I’ve included a few pictures of some of the steps but make sure to check out the end of the post to see my full video tutorial.
These perfect churro cookies are so tasty you’d never know they were made using a boxed mix. Quality ingredients make all the difference!

I’m a self-taught baker, obsessed with cake.

I long ago ditched box mixes in pursuit of melt-in-your-mouth, to-die-for flavor combinations, fillings and textures. I believe cake must be decadent, life-changing and worthy of celebration! And I believe anyone should be able to bake that kind of cake – and I’m here to teach you just that!

  1. I made these cookies and substituted caramel chips instead of cinnamon ones and they were delicious. I’ll definitely make them again.

  2. Hi Courtney!

    I live in Australia and would love love love to try and make these cookies; unfortunately though I don’t have access to the cookie box mix that you use and was wondering if you could give me the ingredients (i.e. flour, etc) and ratios.

    Thank you!
