Directions

300 min.
1. Step

In a large bowl, combine the bread flour, sugar, salt and instant yeast. Stir until evenly mixed.

2. Step

Add cold water and egg white to the bowl, mix until dough forms.

3. Step

Knead the dough for about 3-5 minutes, then let it rest for about 20 minutes.

4. Step

After the rest period, knead once again for a few more minutes, then cover and refrigerate for about an hour.

5. Step

Roll out the refrigerated dough on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of about an inch.

6. Step

Spread a thin layer of softened butter over the top half of the dough. If necessary, chill the dough for another 30 minutes.

7. Step

After chilling, fold the dough in half, covering the buttered half. Roll out into a rectangle and fold into thirds. Repeat this process three times, chilling dough as needed.

8. Step

After the final folding, refrigerate the dough for at least 2 hours.

9. Step

Once chilled, roll out the dough to about 3/4 inch of thickness, cut out doughnuts using a doughnut cutter and leave them to rest for about 10 minutes.

10. Step

Heat the grapeseed oil in a deep fryer or Dutch oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly nudge the cronuts for a few minutes on each side, frying until they are golden.

11. Step

Allow cronuts to cool on a wire rack. Toss in a cinnamon sugar mixture while still warm.

12. Step

Fill with your favorite fruit filling or cream if desired using a pastry bag. Serve warm and enjoy!
