Recently when I made some homemade dough in the bread machine, I had some dough left over. I didn’t want to waste it so Drew and I decided to try our hand at making some Mini Churros. They turned out great, so I’m afraid every time I make homemade dough we’re going to find a way to have some left over dough! If you don’t have any homemade dough, this would work great with refrigerated croissants or biscuits as well. These are definitely going on my menu for Cinco De Mayo!
