How’s this for a crisscross…what could be better than a hybrid of a doughnut and croissant? The “cronut” is just that — flaky, buttery dough that’s deep-fried to golden brown perfection, rolled in sugar, then filled with cream and glazed.
Since its debut in the spring of 2013, the cronut has launched into an international phenomenon with a dedicated following. Burgeoning popularity means this posh pastry is in high demand!
The mastermind behind the cronut craze is pastry chef and owner of Manhattan’s Dominique Ansel Bakery, Dominique Ansel. He invented this circular treat to blend his French upbringing with an American classic.
So while craving tourists and New Yorkers are lining up by the hundreds to get their hands on one, you’ll have no problem scoring the elusive pastry with this recipe from The Daily Meal at home! For more delicious recipes and fun food and wine pairing ideas, subscribe to my newsletter.
