These quick and easy doughnut/croissant (CRONUTS) were posted by offthemeathook.com- I think her name is Kathy.These are her photos and recipe..so easy and simple I know you will want to try them. They remind me of a cross between French Cruellers and creampuffs.
Prepare a large pan with parchment paper and spray with cooking spray and place the frozen croissants on it, well spaced. They will grow a lot! Leave out overnight to rise , about 7 to 10 hours. Next day.....
to glaze put the zest from the orange or lemon and the juice of either with the vanilla into a bowl. Add powdered sugar and stir until it's the consistency of Elmer's glue.
dip the warm Cronuts into the glaze.
1 cup milk
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 egg yolks
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup heavy cream,whipped
Heat the milk and vanilla until just below boiling point. Cream yolks, sugar and cornstarch then gradually pour in the hot milk while whisking. Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook, while stirring until thick. Place in a bowl, cover and allow ti cool completely before folding in the the whipped cream. Place the cream in a piping bag with a small plain nozzle. Fill the 3 holes you made.
