- 1 cup unsalted butter
- 2 cups Imperial Sugar Light Brown Sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour*
- 1/4 cup Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- *Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.
- In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat melt butter and bring to a boil. Stir butter, or swirl pan continuously until it reaches an amber color. Remove from heat and allow butter to cool for 20 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a 9x13-inch baking dish with foil and coat with non-stick spray. Set aside.
- In a large bowl combine butter and brown sugar and stir to combine. Add eggs, vanilla, baking powder, and salt and stir until smooth. Finally, add in flour and mix until just incorporated. Set aside.
- In a small bowl, whisk granulated sugar and ground cinnamon together.
- Sprinkle half of cinnamon sugar evenly into bottom of prepared pan.
- Press dough on top of cinnamon sugar.
- Sprinkle remaining cinnamon sugar on top and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until edges are lightly golden.
- Place pan on a wire rack to cool completely.
- Once cooled, use the foil to remove bars from the pan and cut into pieces.
- Store airtight at room temperature for up to 3 days.
Recipe developed for Imperial Sugar by Shelly Jaronsky @CookiesandCups.
I made the recipe but used dark brown sugar. They taste pretty darn good. If I ever make them again I will use a slightly bigger baking pan. They were bars so they were kind of thick like brownies. I expected thinner bars like cookies.
Two thumbs up! Would make again and again. Chewy. Soft. Slight crunch on the edge. And everything is better with browned butter! Yum!!
These Churro Bars were just so delicious. I took them to our Lady's Guild Meeting and there were only 2 left. Everyone loved them. Next time I have to make a pan for my family.
