How To Make easy delicious homemade cronuts

  • 1
    In a 10" fry pan, heat the canola oil on the stove to 350° (adjust the amount of oil you use to be at 2" from bottom of pan depending on whether you are using a smaller or larger pan)
  • 2
    I'm a medium mixing bowl, mix the powdered sugar, vanilla, butter, and water until smooth. It should be the consistency of thick syrup.
  • 3
    Lay out the biscuits on a piece of parchment paper. Use an apple corer to punch out the center of each biscuit. Put the holes aside to make after you finish making the donuts.
  • 4
    Place 4 donuts in the oil at a time. Watch closely because they brown pretty quickly. As soon as three 1st side is dark golden brown flip them over and cook the same way on three other side.
  • 5
    When donuts are browned on both sides take the donuts out of the oil and place on a wire rack.
  • 6
    Once donuts have cooled slightly, use tongs to place 1 donut at a time in the glaze, flip it over to cover both sides, and place back on the wire rack. Then sprinkle with the fine granulated sugar.
  • 7
    Follow these same steps to make the little donut holes.
