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!

Here is your line up of ingredients. Left to right:  eggs, brown and granulated sugar, cinnamon sugar, flour, cinnamon chips, vanilla and brown butter.

How To Make Cinnamon Sugar Cookie Bars

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line a 9×13 inch baking dish with parchment paper. Place butter into a medium saucepan over medium heat. Melt and cook until browned, swirling occasionally. Remove from heat and let cool for 20 minutes.
  2. Transfer butter to a large mixing bowl or stand mixer. Add sugar, mixing until well combined. Add eggs and vanilla, stirring well. Slowly add flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and cinnamon chips, mixing until just combined. Transfer to prepared baking dish, pressing evenly. Place sugar and cinnamon into a small mixing bowl, stirring then sprinkling over top of pressed dough. Bake for 25-30 minutes until baked through. Remove from oven and let cool for 30 minutes then cut into square and serve.

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.

Add your sugars to the brown butter and mix well.

Stir in your eggs.

Vanilla up next!

Slowly stir in your flour, salt and baking soda.

Cinnamon time!

Cinnamon Chips! If you can’t find cinnamon chips, white chips work great in this recipe too.

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.

Press evenly.

Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mix and time to bake. Nom Nom Nom 🙂
