Brown Butter Churro Cookie Bars

These Churro Cookie Bars could not be more delicious! Brown butter, sweet cinnamon and sugar, oh my!! This dough was literally deadly. I kept going back for little tastes. Now, you will need to find some cinnamon chips. I know some grocery stores sell them, but many don’t. Keep your eyes out for them. If you are not having any luck, I found some on Amazon you can order, and trust me they are worth every penny!

Slowly add flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and cinnamon chips, mixing until just combined. Transfer to prepared baking dish, pressing evenly.

Here are the cinnamon chips I found. For any of you in AZ, I found these perfect mini cinnamon chips by GYGI at Shar’s Bosch Kitchen.  Amazon has some available if you can’t find them in your stores.

How To Brown Butter

  1. Place butter in small saucepan over medium-low heat. Swirl and melt completely. Butter will boil. Continue to swirl and cook until butter turns golden brown and brown bits start forming on bottom of pan. Once butter has a nutty scent and is deep golden brown, remove from heat and transfer to a heat proof bowl. Make sure you spoon out all little black bits from the saucepan. Let brown butter cool at least 15 minutes before using in a cookie recipe.

Just wait until you sample this dough! Seriously to die for!

Transfer your dough to a 9×13 inch baking dish. I like to line it with parchment so I can remove it once cooled and easily cut into squares.

    oh wow…MMM those look good, I could eat a couple of those right now! I have never had these before but I am going to make them.

    check out my site sometime,

    Michael 🙂

  4. Julie

    What temp do these bake at? I couldn’t find it in the recipe and I’m ready to put them together…they sound delish!

  5. SandyN

    At what temperature do we bake these at – 350F (180C) or 375F (190C)? Thanks – they look incredible!! 😉

  6. jane

    These look great!! I am in the process of making them and don’t see what temperature to bake them at. (maybe I missed it)
    Thanks

  7. Melissa @ Treats With a Twist

    First of all, that cinnamon sugar topping looks AMAZING! So yum.
    I have been hoarding a bag of cinnamon chips I had leftover from making cinnamon chip banana bread. This reminds me to fish those out of my freezer and make something delish! I find them every once in awhile at Walmart too (which a previous comment said).
    Beautiful photos as always!

  8. Tracy | Peanut Butter and Onion

    I have 2 bags of cinnamon chips at home and until now, nothing to make with them. Thanks

  9. Sarah Searle

    These look delish….totally going to make them! I have found Hershey’s Cinnamon Chips at Wal-Mart, they seem to always have them. They’re not always by the regular chocolate chips, sometimes they’re across the aisle by the sprinkles (I know weird, but that’s how Wal-Mart is…)

  10. Julia @ hungryandconfused

    These look heavenly! I did spot some cinnamon chips at our supermarket, so I’ll definitely be trying these. Pinning!

  11. Liz @ Virtually Homemade

    These look so buttery good! I love cinnamon chips and isn’t great that if all else fails Amazon probably has it!

  12. Therese (getpartychic.com)

    These look so yummy! Here in KY I can usually find cinnamon chips(and lots of other varieties) at Meijer.

  13. Julie @ Table for Two

    Omg, Jenny. I’m drooling just looking at these photos! The brown butter addition is amazing!

  14. Taylor @ Food Faith Fitness

    There is so much yum going on in that title that I don’t even know what to do with myself.
    Except, make these. Obviously. These look fab!

  15. Lily (A Rhubarb Rhapsody)

    They look scrumptious! I’ve never come across cinnamon chips, which is probably for the best! Sure do sound yummy.

  16. Averie @ Averie Cooks

    I love that they’re brown sugar based AND with cinnamon chips! Two of my fave things! Delish, Jenny! pinned
