Easy Baked Churros

Before I talk about this recipe, I want to remind everyone of St. Nick coming tonight!  So make sure you and your little ones have cleaned your shoes/boots and placed them by the door.  If you've been good, he'll leave you goodies; if not, a stick!  I love this Romanian tradition and my kids are looking forward to it every year.  It's fun!
Now on to the recipe.  It is beyond simple and quick.  You use puff pastry already made.  That shaves off a lot of the time.  Besides being quick, it's also delicious.  It really tastes like churros, but with 1/3 of the work!  Win-win!  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
-1/4 cup unsalted butter
-1/2 cup sugar
-2 tsp cinnamon
Directions:
Preheat oven to 450 F.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Carefully unfold the thawed pastry sheet and lay it out on cutting board.  Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough along the visible folding line.  Then cut each section into 1 inch wide strips.  Arrange strips on prepared cookie sheet.  Bake in preheated oven for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
While they're baking, melt the butter.  Pour it into a shallow bowl.
In another shallow bowl, mix the sugar and cinnamon.
As soon as the pastry strips are done baking, quickly dip them (do not soak!) in the butter, then roll into cinnamon sugar.
Serve immediately.  Enjoy!
