Churros have always been a favorite of mine; warm dough coated in cinnamon-sugar is just plain delicious! So obviously my mind was blown when I learned how to make churros STUFFED WITH STRAWBERRIES AND CREAM CHEESE! I never thought I could enjoy churros at home—and in less than 30 minutes. This recipe’s a home run, and was the perfect treat when I had girlfriends over for coffee last week.
The recipe is beyond simple: Roll white bread nice and thin, fill with Philadelphia Cream Cheese—made with fresh milk, real cream, and no preservatives—add diced strawberries, roll up, coat with butter and cinnamon-sugar, and bake.
I’ve seen similar recipes that suggest you add powdered sugar to the cream cheese, but you don’t need it! I promise this recipe is as heavenly as it gets.
Here’s the recipe:
- 12 slices thin white bread
- 1 8-ounce PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese Brick, softened
- ¼ cup diced strawberries
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1 heaping teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ cup butter, melted
- Cut off the crust of the bread.
- With a rolling pin, roll bread until it’s nice and thin.
- Spread roughly 1 ½ tablespoons of PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese onto each slice.
- Add small amount of diced strawberries to one end of bread.
- Roll up bread. It might tear a bit, but just keep pinching as you go. It’s fine.
- Combine sugar and cinnamon and set aside.
- Dip each roll into melted butter, then roll in sugar mixture.
- Place on an ungreased baking sheet.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 17 minutes or until golden brown.
The warm filling takes these churros from yummy to decadent- nothing else tastes like Philadelphia Cream Cheese. These are perfect to serve for dessert, an afternoon coffee date or even for brunch. Enjoy!
