Churro Style Cookies #TheLeftoversClub

churro style sweet little earsWelcome to another month of good delicious leftovers with #TheLeftoversClub, and don’t get me wrong, we are not sending leftovers to our friends, this is just a funny way to call our fabulous group.
Let me tell you, it is really easy, we send delicious treats to our friends every month, for real, and I love it because I can taste something completely different.
This month I decide to make something very simple, you know with all the make ahead dishes we make for the holidays, sometimes it is difficult to choose a good recipe to send.
This sweet little ears, are not really ears, in my country they are call Orejitas, just because it resembles an ear, funny right?
And there are super simple to make, delicious, crunchy and warm, with all the cinnamon I add, oh very important I forgot to tell the it’s like eating a little buttery churro, Yum!
My little ears are churro inspired, because everybody love churros and why not chance the concept a little.
Hope you enjoy.

Ok, place one of the puff pastries sheets on the table and roll in each end, making sure each end will make it to the center of the pastry, you can be fancy and measure, but this is a stress free recipe.

Then cut the pastry in 2 inch pieces, and press each piece on the sugar and cinnamon mixture. This is a very important step because they need to be super coated with the sugar, the flavor of this “cookies” is very important in the recipe.

Bake for 15 minutes, let it cool completely or as me eat it when warm.

This recipe makes 28 little cookies.
