Our friend Heather from WhipperBerry stopped by today to be part of our Books Alive Summer Reading Series, which means we’re in for a treat. Heather always shares amazing recipes, and this one already has my mouth watering. Take it away Heather…
I am so excited to be here on Paging Supermom today!! I’m a HUGE fan of these talented ladies and I adore this series that they’ve put together this summer.
I, like many moms out there, LOVE to read to my kiddos, but I especially love to read to my kiddos when the book is just as entertaining to me as it is to the little ones. One of our favorite books is SkippyJon Jones! It’s about a precocious little kitten who thinks he’s a Chihuahua! Using his best spanish accent he says,” My ears are too beeg for my head. My head ees too beef for my body. I am not a Siamese Cat… I’m a Chihuahua!!” Donning a Zorro like mask, he heads off to have all kinds of adventures quietly singing… ” My name is Skippitto Friskito. (clap-clap) I fear not a single bandito. (clap-clap) My manners are mellow, I’m sweet like the Jell-o, I get the job done, yes indeed-o. (clap-clap)”
You can’t help but fall in love with sweet Skippito! The best part, I’m just as entertained as my kiddos are. Now, I have a four-year-old, little guy who reminds me soooo much of SkippyJon. One minute he’s a monkey, the next he’s a puppy! We decided, in honor of SkippyJon, we were going to make SkippyJon Jones Churros in a Flashito…
Typically to make Churro’s, it’s a pretty involved recipe that takes time and a bit of talent. Not these! In true SkippyJon form, you can make them in a flash because they are just biscuit who think they are CHURRO’s — too perfect! Enjoy this fun snack while you read all about SkippyJon’s adventures. This is perfect for my little SkippyJon who LOVE to create all kinds of adventures for himself…
Note the scar on his forehead… yes, we have proof. He’s a bit if a Skippito!
CHURROS IN A FLASHITO RECIPE
:: Refrigerated Can Biscuit Dough
:: Cinnamon & Sugar, mixed
:: Cooking Oil
All you have to do to make these scrumptious Churros… Grab a can of your favorite refrigerated canned biscuit dough, stretch the dough a bit and then roll it into long ropes about 5-6 inches long.
Now to cook them take a large, heavy bottom pot and pour in about three inches of oil. Place over high heat with a thermometer in the oil to keep track of the temperature. Once the oil gets between 325-350 degrees you can carefully drop your biscuit ropes into the oil, just a couple at a time. Watch the temperature of your oil and make sure it doesn’t go above 350 degrees. Let your Churro’s cook until light to medium brown on both sides.
Remove from the oil and immediately place on a baking sheet that has a thin layer of cinnamon sugar. Roll your Churro’s in the sugar and then place on a wire rack or paper towel to cool. Once cool, enjoy!
If you want to make it even easier you can cut your biscuit dough into fourths and roll into balls and cook the same way. Roll them in the cinnamon sugar mixture and presto, you have Churro balls!
We like to dip our Churro’s in chocolate sauce. I just heat some store bought hot fudge in the microwave and set it out with the Churro’s…
This is one of those treats that your kiddos will love. Take a look at my Skippito in action as I was trying to photograph our treat…
Yea, it’s a home run for sure!
Thanks Bettijo and Aimée for having me over to play, it’s been fun! You guys are more than welcome to come on over to WhipperBerry and see what else I have going on in my neck of the woods.
