Churro twists (only 4 ingredients!)

I made these as a dessert for our Cinco De Mayo inspired dinner, but they can really be made any time! 

These are really fun for the kids to help with. My 4 year old loved them!


  • 2 TBSP sugar
  • 1 TBSP ground cinnamon
  • 2 TBSP butter (melt for about 20 seconds)
  • 1 8oz can of crescent dinner rolls 

How to:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 
  2. Mix together the 2 TBSP of sugar and 1 TBSP of cinnamon and set the bowl aside. 
  3. In a different bowl, melt the butter until it’s completely melted. 
  4. Unroll the dough and break it apart into 4 rectangles, sealing together the perforation mark. 
  5. Brush the tops with butter, then sprinkle about half of the mixture onto the butter. 
  6. Cover the tops you just coated with the remaining 2 plain rectangles and cut each into 6 strips.  
  7. Twist each strip about 3-4 times and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet. Coat the twists with the remaining butter and sugar mixture.  
  8. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes (longer if you prefer a crispier twist).
