Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 9 cronuts
Ingredients
  • Dough:
  • 1 packet (4 sheets) frozen puff pastry (read package instructions for thawing)
  • Sugar coating:
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground all spice (replace with cinnamon if unavailable)
  • ½ cup (110 g) granulated sugar
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup (140 g) icing sugar (also known as confectioners’ or powdered sugar)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground all spice (replace with cinnamon if unavailable)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp milk
Instructions
  1. Take out frozen puff pastry and remove plastic sheets in between the dough. Stack them evenly into four layers.
  2. Sprinkle some flour and roll out the dough lightly and evenly on all sides. By the time you are done, the pastry would have softened.
  3. Using a donut ring cutter or large round pastry cutter, cut the dough into round donut shapes. You should be able to get 9 perfect-looking cronuts. Rest them on a plate lined with kitchen paper and refrigerate for 10 mins.
  4. Prepare your sugar coating by mixing all the ingredients together in a plate.
  5. In a small bowl, combine all the glaze ingredients and set aside.
  6. Heat up a pot with approximately 3-inch level of oil at 165°C/325°F. Take out the cold dough and fry one cronut at a time. The drastic change of temperature in the dough will result in a nicely puffed up cronut. Keep unused portion covered with cling wrap in the fridge.
  7. Fry them for 3 – 4 mins, until golden brown. Drain on a piece of kitchen towel.
  8. When the pastries are semi-cooled, roll the outer sides of the cronuts with the spiced sugar and generously drizzle the top with the spiced glaze.
  9. Let the glaze set for about 15 mins before serving. Store in air-tight container at room temperature for a day.
