DIY Cronuts & Cronut Holes

May 26, 2013 § Leave a comment

The entire Internet is freaking out about the Cronut– the confectionary result of some hot, doughy copulation between a croissant and a donut. There’s apparently only one bakery selling them and they sell out within 30 minutes of opening, but fear not, Internet. Here’s a nifty little lifehack that lets you make these babies at home! You’re welcome. Now ya’ll can get over the whole cronut thing.

1 package Pillsbury Grands! Flaky Layers in Honey Butter flavor

Carefully cut out the centers of the biscuits. Set centers aside if you want to make cronut holes. Bake cronuts at 350° for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Vanilla glaze:
1 cup confectioner’ s sugar
1 Tbsp. milk (I used Silk Vanilla Almond Milk)
½ tsp. vanilla extract
Liquid food coloring
White candy pearls (optional)

Stir sugar, milk and vanilla extract until sugar is completely dissolved. Add food coloring and stir until desired color is achieved. Use immediately to glaze cronuts. Sprinkle on some candy pearls. Bam. Cronut.

For Cronut Holes: I baked the holes for about 6 minutes. Once mostly cooled, I pulled them in half and dipped them into the glaze creating a sort of sandwich or macaron (Cronutron? Yes. It’s a tasty transformer).
