I am big on traditions and not just during the holidays. For as long as I can remember, every summer I let my kids pick out something special for me to bake for them. In the summer, I had more time to spend on recipes that typically took longer than others such as cinnamon rolls, cheesecakes, layer cakes, or experimenting on something they’ve always wanted to try but I’d never made before. This summer, Grayson chose Krispy Kreme copycat doughnuts and Corinne chose Churros with Vanilla Icing.
Churros are actually pretty easy to make but I rarely deep fry so it worked out perfectly to use the same pot of oil that I used for the doughnuts the week before. I just let the oil cool, covered it, and put it in the refrigerator until Churro time the next week.
Churros are usually served with a chocolate dipping sauce but my girl loves to dip them (and everything else) in vanilla icing. It was her special summer recipe choice, so what did I do? I made vanilla icing, of course!
When I started looking for recipes for Krispy Kreme copycat recipes online, I found that there were no shortage of them. I combined several recipes and came up with this version that apparently was a hit with my son and his best friend. When you hear “These are BETTER than Krispy Kreme’s”, then you know you’ve hit a home run.
