Cronuts are a delectable way to start off your morning with a flaky and light treat. If you love doughnuts, you’ll go crazy for cronuts. Especially if you eat them warm and straight from the pan.

CRONUT

From Baking Beauty

Ingredients:

  • 1 package Pillsbury uncut crescent roll sheet
  • 1 snack-size container vanilla pudding
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • Vegetable oil

Directions:

  1. Fill a pan with 2 inches of oil. Heat the oil to 350 F over medium heat.
  2. Fold dough in half in one direction, then fold in half in the other. Using a cup, cut 3-inch circles from the dough.
  3. Cut 1-inch circles from center of each 3-inch circle. Save the 1-inch circles to cook as cronut holes.
  4. Gather up the scraps, roll them and cut an additional cronut.
  5. In the pan with oil, fry the donuts about 90 seconds on each side until golden brown. On paper towels, drain and allow to cool before glazing.
  6. Mix powdered sugar, vanilla and 1 tablespoon of milk. Add additional milk as needed.
  7. Split a cooled cronut in half and fill with 2 tablespoons of pudding, then replace top.
  8. Drizzle top with glaze and allow it to set.
