THE Cronuts they are puffed donuts, a sweet halfway between a donuts and a croissant, hence their bizarre name. A recipe that comes directly from America, invented by the pastry chef Dominique Ansel of the patisserie of the same name in New York and which has been going crazy on the web for several months. Who loves the glazed donuts can not miss this delicacy, where the fried taste creeps between the sheets of the donut, creating a melting sensation with every bite.
After trying the cruffin recipe last month, I immediately threw myself into experimenting with this other hybrid and I literally fell in love with it :)
With this recipe I greet you and I wish you a sweet weekend, I will be super busy in my business as a mother, a sweet task that I can't wait to fulfill 100% during this 2 days: P
How to make the Cronuts
To make the cronuts dough, put the flour in a bowl, make a hole in the center and add the yeast, sugar, vanilla and milk and start kneading.
Then add the egg, the butter cut into pieces and the salt and knead until the mixture is smooth and homogeneous. It will take about 10 minutes.
Form a ball then cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough rise until doubled, it will take about 2 hours.Take the dough and roll it out on a floured work surface and with a rolling pin try to obtain a rectangle with a thickness of half a centimeter.
Create a cream by working together the softened butter with the flour and spread it on the rectangle of dough
Fold the dough in three then roll it out vertically with a rolling pin. Fold it again in three and let it rest in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Take the rectangle of dough and roll it out to obtain a thickness of about 2 cm. Then with two round cookie cutters of two different sizes, make the donuts.
Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and let them rise for 30 minutes.
Fry the puffed donuts a little at a time in a saucepan with boiling oil, turn them once golden and cook until the entire surface is browned completely.
With the help of a skimmer, then lift the donuts from the oil and arrange them on a plate lined with absorbent paper.
Prepare the water glaze
Put the icing sugar in a small bowl.
Add the lukewarm water and mix until you get a thick and homogeneous glaze.
Decorate the cronuts with the water glaze and then cover with colored sprinkles.
Serve your cronuts now.
