These Puff Pastry Donuts are amazing and delicious donuts made ut of puff pastry. This recipe cuts down on the time to make a “Cronut” but not the flavor!
Last weekend, I had one of the most amazing times in a long time with my significant other. Let’s see, we grabbed our nieces and took them to a place in Cincinnati, OH called Coney Island for a “Fall-O-Ween” festival where there are rides and all types of seasoning fun stuff. We really used the girls to go ourselves. Just like how we used them to watch Frozen. We tried to watch it alone but it was way to kid-like for two grown people to sit and watch.
Then, we went to our first NFL game, Bengals vs. Panthers, and had a BALL! On our way to the stadium, after my 3rd TV segment with Fox 19 News (BOOM!), we had brunch downtown at a restaurant called Crave. Oh, wait! I am leaving out one important part of our day. We went….are you ready…we went to Holtman’s Donut Shop, which is also located downtown! You see, I am a donut connoisseur and I will travel to the ends of the earth to find the best donut. Unfortunately, it is one of my favorite foods EVER! Why would God equip me with such taste buds to crave the worst things you can put into your body?! It doesn’t matter. I will always love them.

Common Questions About Puff Pastry Donuts
How long will these Puff Pastry Donuts last?
Cronuts are best enjoyed fresh and eaten immediately, that’s why all bakeries bake them fresh in the morning and sell them at a discount as the store closes! But if you have leftovers, you can place them in a sealed container and place them in the refrigerator for 1-2 days. It will still taste delicious but the freshness will be gone.
What’s the best glaze for Cronuts?
The sky’s the limit when it comes to choosing Cronut glaze! Although the classic sugar glaze is delicious every time, you can try mixing it up and experimenting. I would love to try cinnamon spice, maple bacon glaze, buttermilk, or lemon glaze!
