Like churros, xuixos are cylindrical pastries deep fried and sprinkled with sugar. But xuixos are also similar to croissants in that they’re made with a laminated dough rather than a doughnut dough. They’re also filled with cream (and sometimes chocolate).
Basically, they are a croissant crossed with a churro and filled with cream. They originate from Girona and its history dates back to the 1920s. Xuixos are seen as a Catalan specialty and you can find them in churrerias (or xurrerias) and pastry shops in various cities around the region.
Ours are made from a family of artisans and considered the best one in Catalunya.
Finish them in the oven straight from the freezer.
