Tasty Tuesdays- Was That Pin A Win? Cronut Addition

Chocolate Cronut

Chocolate Cronut

Today we are tackling the Cronut. All over Pinterest I see recipes for these donut/ croissant hybrids. Flaky and buttery like a croissant, but soft and sweet like a donut. I did a simple glaze and chocolate drizzle on mine. Spoiler alert- I was not a huge fan of these. They were not bad, but the dough was SO buttery I felt like I was eating a Ritz cracker with chocolate. Again not necessarily a bad thing, but it was too rich for my tastes.

Flakey buttery donut / croissant hybrid.
Ingredients
  • Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
  • Oil for Frying
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • Melted chocolate
Instructions
  1. Flour your surface and roll your crescent dough out in a rectangle. Fold over and roll out again. Fold over one more time and roll the dough again. Use a biscuit cutter or cookie cutter and cut out 6 circles. For the middles I use the back of a piping tip.
  2. Fry at 350 degrees until brown on both sides. Watch these very closely because they will burn quickly. There is a lot of butter in this dough. I fried 3 at a time. Let drain on a paper towel until cooled. Mix together the milk and sugar to make your glaze. After glazing all the donuts you can drizzle them with chocolate.
