an easy, homemade croissant-donut recipe

By 11/25/2011

  • Cook Time : 25 minutes
  • Yield : 6 - 8 donuts



  • On a well floured surface, lay the pastry sheets together, one on top of the other - lining up the edges.  Use a rolling pin to roll them out a little - so they stick together.
  • Fold in 1/3 from the left, then 1/3 on top from the right, lining up the edges well, so the rectangle is 1/3 of the original size.  Use your rolling pin to roll this smaller rectangle out to the original size.  Fold the sides in again and repeat this process for a total of 4 times.
  • Use a biscuit cutter to cut 6 - 8 doughnuts from the dough, then a smaller round cutter to cut out the center.
  • Heat the oil over medium heat, until when you drop in a scrap of dough it rises quickly to the top.
  • Fry the doughnuts in the oil about 2 minutes, or until browned, then turn over gently to cook the other side.  Remove and drain on paper towels.
  • To make the icing, whisk the milk into the powdered sugar, then add maple syrup until it reaches the desired consistency.
