Disneyland Churros

No trip to Disneyland is complete without grabbing on of their famous churros! They’re a simple treat, made up by taking a long piece of fried dough and rolling it in sugar and cinnamon. (Get the recipe to make your own Disneyland churros here).

There are churro carts located all around Disneyland and churros that come in a variety of flavors and toppings. It’s no wonder that the deliciousness of classic churro cinnamon and sugar flavor has made its way into other treats like Churro Toffee, Churro Funnel Cakes and these Churro Sugar Cookies!

Ingredients Needed for Churro Sugar Cookies

Unsalted Butter- For this recipe, I prefer to use unsalted butter. You will also want to make sure that the butter is softened to room temperature. Butter will also be used when making the cinnamon/sugar frosting.

Sugar- This is a classic ingredient for sugar cookies.

Brown Sugar- Brown Sugar is an important part of this recipe for one special reason. It gives the cookies a subtle molasses flavor that replicates the delicious churro cinnamon taste! Brown sugar will also be used to enhance the flavor in the churro frosting for these cookies.

Vanilla- You will also need pure vanilla extract to complete this recipe. The vanilla adds both aroma and flavor to the sugar cookies, so make sure you use good quality vanilla. I get mine from Costco.

Large Eggs- You will also need large eggs in this recipe. They should be at room temperature, so let them sit out for around 30 minutes before using in your recipe.

All-Purpose Flour- This is another simple all purpose flour used to make sugar cookies.

Cinnamon- There’s nothing more classic than cinnamon, so it is a key ingredient in these Churro Sugar Cookies!

Baking Powder- Baking powder will be the main leavening agent in this recipe. It will help your sugar cookies rise and have that nice thick cookie texture you want!

Sparkling Sugar- This is an optional ingredient, but is used on the Churro Sugar Cookies that are sold at Disneyland. They can be found at most grocery stores, or here on Amazon.

Salt- Salt is used in many recipes to enhance the flavor of other ingredients, so it’s important that you add a pinch to this recipe!
